ENGINEERING AND INDUSTRIAL MANAGEMENT
The main objective of the Doctoral Program in Industrial Engineering and Management (PRODEGI) is to provide students with a set of competencies, skills, and research methods, along with the development of skills to conceive, design, adapt, and produce intensive research, having in mind quality, requirements and integrity standards inherent to the academic activity, so that they can develop innovative research work in the field of Industrial Engineering and Management.
More specifically, this doctoral program aims at providing the students with the necessary skills for them to:
- Develop new approach methods and techniques for decision-making processes, which answer to the present and the future needs of the organizations.
- Adapting existing methods and techniques of Industrial Engineering and Management to solve new problems in new organizational environments.
- Making comparative studies of methods or techniques of Industrial Engineering and Management, which allow measuring their impact on the organizations.
The program comprises a doctoral course (no degree granted) corresponding to 60 ECTS that prepares students, methodologically and scientifically, for a scientific thesis, corresponding to 120 ECTS and that grants the degree.
The research strategy adopted by PRODEGI is one of using theoretical study applied to real and challenging enterprise’s problems. The research results should be of the appropriate quality for publication in internationally refereed journals and presentation in international research-oriented conferences.
Desirably, the research projects will be associated with host institutions, namely industrial and service enterprises, to which the issues under research are considered important, in terms of innovation.
