Access to further studies: After completing the master’s degree, the education can continue in the scientific-educational degree Magister – MEng in the respective or related specialty.

Programme importance: Specialty Industrial Engineering combines classical and modern trends in the design and operation of industrial systems.

General characteristics of the education:

The education is conducted under the methodological guidance of the Faculty of English Engineering Training at the Technical University – Sofia. The specialty “Industrial Engineering” is a mix of technology dealing with optimization and management of complex processes and systems. The course is both theoretical and practical.

During the training period, students are given the opportunity to build their initial job skills. They gain a range of knowledge and skills in the design, implementation and management of complex systems and processes. The specificity of the training in the specialty consists in combining fundamental knowledge in the modeling of processes in technical and organizational systems, electrical engineering, electronics, computer science, management theory, with general engineering, natural sciences, humanities, and economics, as well as the acquisition of foreign language. The professionalism of the trainees is built through a precise selection of the studied theoretical material, and skill for self-learning is developed. Disciplines that are common to the specialty are studied, such as management of industrial production and production design, computer integrated production, automation and control of technological processes, industrial production systems; production strategies, control systems theory. Electives of courses are characteristic of training in the specialty of Industrial Engineering.
