Program Description

You think big, bigger, biggest. In the Industrial Engineering & Management study programme you focus entirely on international maintenance management.

Every day, hundreds of people board aeroplanes. You are responsible for ensuring that these planes are in a good state of repair. You manage the maintenance of large ships, sustainable energy generation, or machines in factories. Not just for technical companies, but also in the care sector and for the government. You do not carry out maintenance yourself, but ensure that it takes place. And convince management that it is necessary.

Maintenance management is strongly on the rise. You will work in close collaboration with the biggest companies around the world. With students from the Netherlands and further afield. The programme is extremely practice-based. You will spend the first two years studying in Breda. Your work placement and graduation phase can take place in Breda, but the opportunities are all around the globe.

Program Structure

You will study complex technical systems in depth. You will know what you are talking about when you design and record maintenance procedures. Or explain them to the engineers who will carry out the maintenance. You will learn to predict how long a machine will last. And when it is time for large-scale maintenance.

So you can preclude risks and monitor safety. You will also learn about management structures. Planning and execution. Materials management. Cost analysis. And logistical matters.
