The PhD Programme in Industrial Engineering aims to train researchers, academics and leaders capable of carrying out research work independently in the scientific area of Industrial Engineering. Since the opportunities for professional doctorates in this branch of knowledge are at research and development related to public and private sector companies in public and private, and institutions of higher education. Thus, the PhD in Industrial Engineering aims to combine engineering research at doctoral level, with training which provides the necessary skills to develop, evaluate and disseminate process or product-oriented technology.
The course was developed to ensure broad general skills in the Industrial Engineering area, established acording to the Dublin descriptors and expertise, gained through the completion of courses offered in the PhD in Industrial Engineering. The completion of these courses allow students to obtain specific skills namely in planning, control and management of operations, logistics, quality, innovation and strategic management of technology in the area of marketing, ergonomics, hygiene and safety, or information systems, applicable in industrial systems and / or services.
