Master Ingenieria Industrial Industria Conectada
"Specific training is acquired on the new industrial context"

What is the Official Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering + Master's Degree in Smart Industry?

This combined Master's program is composed of the Master in Industrial Engineering (MII) and the Master in Smart Industry (MIC). It equips students with general industrial engineering skills while also offering a wide perspective of the new industrial context resulting from the digitalization of industry. The combination of academic rigor and internships on real projects will make it possible to respond with solvency to the new challenges of companies (machine learning, big data, IoT , cloud communications, digital manufacturing, cybersecurity...).

The program is designed so that students can develop the skills and abilities acquired on both degrees in two years: the increased workload, characteristics of a double-degree program, requires students to possess strong organizational, study and work-related skills. Throughout the program, students are constantly guided and supported by their lecturers and tutors.

Lead the digital transformation process of the Industry

The Program is designed to develop the skills of both Degrees. Students who obtain this double degree, in addition to being able to join the National College of Engineers of ICAI and to practice the profession, regulated by the Law on Industrial Engineering, will be natural leaders in the process of the digital transformation of the Industry.
