It is our pleasure to congratulate you on having been admitted to our Industrial Engineering and Management master’s programme. We are confident that it will be important for your professional career and provide you with interesting challenges and personal development. Our ambition is to educate advanced professionals for an international market. Currently we are planning the autumn semester and are looking forward to welcoming you here in August.
The way of studying might differ from what you are used to. Besides lectures and laboratory work, we put a large emphasis on you being active in projects, writing papers, essays and reports and presenting the results of minor research tasks. Does this sound demanding? You are absolutely right – it is! We take studies very seriously and want your time with us to be as meaningful as possible. But we also guarantee that this will not prevent you from having many fun and interesting experiences during your time in Linköping.
Introduction Days 25-27 August
New master’s students to the Faculty of Science and Engineering will be formally welcomed at Campus Valla in Linköping. You will receive important information regarding your studies and meet your Master's Programme Contact Person. You will also meet senior students who will be your mentors during the start of the semester. They will assist you with practical issues and guide you through the various academic administration systems you need to be familiar with.
