This Bachelor’s programme is designed primarily for those of you who decide to continue your studies on a relevant Master’s programme.


Depending on which Master’s programme you choose after your Bachelor’s programme, your career can go in many different directions.

Problem based learning and working in groups during your study programme will give you many useful skills that make you an attractive candidate on the job market. You know how to approach a problem and solve it in collaboration with other people, which is often how things are done in the “real world”.

You can improve a company’s competitiveness in relation to flexibility, acceleration and globalisation. Also, you can improve working procedures, production systems, product development and planning, integrated product development and logistics. An example of a well-known production development engineer is Tim Cook, CEO at Apple, who has streamlined the production and increased the quality and revenue of the company.

In service companies such as UPS, Amazon and PostNord or in IT companies such as Microsoft and Google, you can be part of planning, implementing and improving working procedures and the development and utilisation of advanced technology.

During the last years, public systems such as hospitals and local and state administrations are met with high demands for efficiency. You can take part in this development because you have insights in and knowledge of work planning, quality control, production management and optimal resource utilisation.
