Minor

The expertise of an industrial engineer is contingent on the understanding of opportunities provided and constraints imposed by technical systems. An expert in the field of industrial engineering and management needs to understand the engineering processes and systems in order to be able to create and transform technology-based business. This requires expertise in a selected field of engineering, so that a graduates from the programme has the knowledge and skills to follow and critically analyze development in this field. The foundation for this engineering knowledge is created in Bachelor's studies and refined at the Master's level.

To acquire appropriate level of knowledge in a technical discipline, the student can choose the minor from an appropriate field of engineering. The selection of the minor is regulated, and suitable options depend on the educational background of the student.

Students with Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering and Management, and all other students with equivalent educational background: Students with BSc in IEM or equivalent studies are required to choose the minor of their master’s studies in a field of engineering that clearly differs from industrial engineering and management. The minor may be in a different field of engineering than the minor of their bachelor’s degree. The minor should be selected from the offering by Aalto schools of technology. However, the programme may disallow some minors because of overlap with industrial engineering and management. For the same reason, the programme may also restrict the choice of optional courses within a minor. For more information, please see https://into.aalto.fi/display/eniem/Study+Guide.

The educational background is assessed during the admission process. Graduates from the Bachelor’s Programme in Science and Technology (Teknistieteellinen kandidaattiohjelma) majoring in industrial engineering and management follow these guidelines.

Students with a Bachelor’s degree with the major in a field of engineering that clearly differs from industrial engineering and management: The minor can be chosen freely. Again, the educational background is assessed during the admission process.

Students with a Bachelor’s degree in other fields: Students with bachelor’s degree in non-engineering fields such as natural sciences choose the minor of their master’s studies in a field of engineering that clearly differs from industrial engineering and management. The minor should be selected from the offering by Aalto schools of technology. However, the programme may disallow some minors because of overlap with industrial engineering and management. For the same reason, the programme may also restrict the choice of optional courses within a minor. For more information, please see https://into.aalto.fi/display/eniem/Study+Guide.

Any student may also include a second minor in the elective studies. The programme has no restrictions concerning the second minor.

In every case, the minor may be of master’s level or bachelor’s level. The minor is confirmed in the Personal Study Plan.
