There is a large demand for Industrial Engineers in the Netherlands and abroad. After your graduation, you can work (with or without a few years of experience) for example as (asset) manager, technical business manager or adviser.
Assets are company resources, for instance machines, vehicles and other important ‘tools’. As an asset manager, it is your responsibility to make the right choice with respect to these (often) large, expensive and advanced assets. You will be responsible for the purchasing, complete life cycle and maintenance of these assets. To this end, you will outsource the research into the costs as well as the technical and commercial aspects, and the impact on the environment. You will give your advice based on this investigation.
Technical business manager
As technical business manager, you will manage the people and the resources in the company where you work. You will set goals, manage and attract assets, establish partnerships and you will ensure that the goals are met.
As an internal or external adviser, you will research and analyse the processes and the corporate culture of organizations and you will give advice to make them more effective and/or more efficient. Based on your analysis, you will find creative solutions and you will draw up a project plan to improve processes. Additionally, you will help the client to put your advice into practice. You will manage projects or advise management about their role in implementing the suggested changes and you will ensure that there is sufficient support.
With a HZ bachelor's degree, you can enrol in a Master’s programme. If you want to do this abroad, you can usually start straight away. If you wish to do this at a research university in the Netherlands, you may be required to follow a pre-Master’s programme.
