Bachelor in Industrial Engineering and Management

The Industrial Engineering and Management program was designed in response to the increasing autonomy of manufacturing. It trains engineers capable of developing and managing a production tool using digital technologies.


This Bachelor program favours a transversal approach to value creation, by integrating the human and environmental dimensions in order to improve the efficiency of industrial processes.

This Bachelor program is offered only by the Haute Ecole Arc Ingénierie and the Haute Ecole d’Ingénierie et de Gestion du canton de Vaud.


Industrial Process Engineering Major

The search for efficiency in industrial processes is based on the autonomy of manufacturing, both through the automation of production equipment and the LEAN approach, while merging the cultures of the physical and digital worlds.

As an industrial process engineer, you manage and improve a company’s production lines by optimizing manufacturing and assembly processes.

You draw on skills in production engineering, robotics, quality control and production management to improve the performance of costs, quality and deadlines, in order to achieve operational excellence.


Breakdown of subjects

Industrial Process Engineering

You learn not only to understand, measure and optimize the various stages of a company’s value chain, from its suppliers to its end customers, but also to manage all manufacturing processes, while integrating environmental, economic and societal dimensions.
