Industrial systems

To manage industrial system, its costs and optimize its performances

The optimization of an industrial processus depends on the technical and financial requirements and constraints: quality assurance, the human as active and decisional element, the environment, innovation and the competitive context.

The Industrial System engineer is trained at the design, management and maintenance of manufacturing systems, at taking into account the environmental impact and risks as well as at the implementation of manufacturing techniques processes.
