Industrial Engineers: engineers with a global vision of the company!

Industrial Engineers from Toulouse INP-ENSIACET combine the skills of a high-level multidisciplinary engineer with those of a company’s technical functions’ manager. Armed with a solid scientific and technical background, he can successfully coordinate the interfaces between the control of industrial processes and the management of complex and integrated industrial systems. He is prepared and committed to the factory of the future.

The Toulouse INP-ENSIACET "industrial engineering" major aims to train competent engineers in all the key aspects of industrial organization, giving them the knowledge and skills sought and adapted to all sectors of activity, from traditional manufacturing industries to digital and service companies. Industrial Engineers from Toulouse INP-ENSIACET can perform in any industrial sector, and deal with the physical system of the company (engineering, industrialization, production), with more transversal functions (quality, information systems, logistics) as well as the global industrial process (project management, support for innovation, business creation). A trademark of Toulouse INP-ENSIACET’s industrial engineering curriculum is to mix the industrial engineering discipline with chemical engineering processes and technologies.
