Application Requirements

Master’s degrees in Industrial Engineering are targeted at students who gained a first academic degree in a similar field of studies. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of this discipline, Management or Business degrees may be accepted as well as certain related engineering degrees. For most programs, entrance tests or interviews are not part of the admission process, you only have to hand in standard certificates (your first degree certificate, a transcript of records). These typically include your CV and a letter of motivation and sometimes an academic essay. Additionally, you may have to demonstrate your English language abilities with a language certificate. Some programs may also require their applicants to have taken a certain amount of credits in certain subjects during their undergraduate studies, such as Math.
