Industrial engineering Study programme

Industrial engineering

Modern study programme made to fit the needs of industrial enterprises

The programme is based on long-term experience of API – Academy of Productivity and Innovations and Institute of Industrial Engineering (IPI) with training and education in the field of industrial engineering and on experience gained during implementation of individual projects in industrial enterprises. One-year comprehensive study programme offers an overview of professional knowledge and practical experience which enable implementation and project management focused on higher efficiency of business processes.

Practical study programme

Theoretical industrial engineering knowledge complemented with hands-on approach guarantee practical application. The programme combines lectures, individual consultations, field trips to selected enterprises, case studies, workshops and project work in real business environment.

Project implementation

In the course of the programme, the participants prepare and implement an individual project which is carried out in their respective enterprises under the tuition and with the assistance of a tutor. The project will be based on real business process issues and will comprise of current status analysis, improvement proposal and its practical implementation. Upon request, the project results will be presented in the enterprise.

Work and form of the programme

The programme is organised into blocs and makes it possible to align work and training without cutting back on usual workload.

  • 208 hours of lectures in blocs with 3 weeks in between
  • Gemba Tour in form of 4 trips to selected industrial enterprises
  • Project implementation in your enterprise under the supervision of a tutor
  • Consultations with lecturers and tutors
  • Individual study based on provided training materials

Return on investment

Project features of the programme guarantee immediate return on investment. The projects have economic impacts and the output is defined as quantitative savings. The project results, i.e. real and improved efficiency of the selected business process, are measurable; the investment is returned in the course of study.

Target group

Training programme aims at middle and top management of industrial enterprises who want to gain know-how in the field of industry engineering; specifically at process and industrial engineers, planning, production, logistics, change and technical processing managers.

Programme benefits for the participants and their enterprises 

  • higher qualification focused on industrial engineering
