Informasjon om studiestart

A Master of Science degree in Industrial Engineering will provide students with the knowledge and capabilities to use appropriate techniques, skills, and tools to identify, formulate, analyze, and solve complex problems in both engineering and management. With normal progress, a student will be able to obtain a master degree after two years, corresponding to 120 credits. If the student wants to combine the master study with work in an external company, it is possible to extend the program to three or four years. A customized education plan will then be suggested. After finishing this education, students will have a solid foundation to enter a variety of positions at global base. The typical positions are senior engineer, project managers, developers, consultants, managers and researchers. Many of our former students are holding managerial or senior research positions in public organizations or private companies.

What sets our program apart is its unwavering commitment to sustainability, resilience, and human-centered systems and technologies. As a student, you'll have exclusive access to state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment, including Robots, Cobots, Autonomous vehicles, Hybrid and metal printers, Virtual and augmented reality systems, and much more.

Historically, our M.Sc program has attracted a diverse and dynamic cohort of students from around the globe. They have excelled in both management and advanced technical engineering roles, making them highly sought-after in the job market. Join us on this transformative journey, where innovation and excellence meet to shape the future of industrial engineering. Apply now to become a part of our vibrant community of aspiring leaders!"

The aim of the program Industrial Engineering is to provide the students with knowledge, skills and general competence in Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing, Industrial Robotics, Optimization, Data Management, Computer Integrated and Virtual Manufacturing, Lean Six Sigma, Project Management, Production Logistics, and Supply Chain Management.

Refresher course:

In Week 33 a two-days refresher course in linear algebra is offered. In this course, central concepts and methods from previous linear algebra courses will be repeated. Experiences from previous years are that students who participate in this refresher course benefit greatly from this in SMN6190 Linear Algebra II.

All teachings in this programme are in English.

The programme involves lectured courses, as well as a high degree of problem-based education (i.e. learning-by-doing), where the students spend their time working on relevant projects under supervision of a highly qualified staff. The projects are concerned with relevant topics within the field of industrial engineering.

Form of assessment

Through the two-year master’s programme of Industrial Engineering, students are evaluated in both theoretical knowledge and engineering skills. This evaluation is based on written or oral exams, in addition to written reports and presentation of project results. The programme aims at being international and research-based, and the students will therefore acquire state-of-the-art competence in both technology and management.

Mandatory safety training in health, security and environment (HSE)

All students must complete mandatory safety training before they are allowed access and given permission to work in laboratories, workshops and the like. This also goes for participation in fieldwork/research cruises and similar. Please contact your immediate supervisor for the list of mandatory courses.


UiT Narvik has a Ph.D. education within the field of Engineering Science and Technology.

The students have great possibilities to take some parts of the study programme at other universities abroad, especially in connection with the final master thesis. UIT Narvik has active collaborations with other universities in countries like China, Japan, USA, Hungary, Sweden, Germany and Spain.
