Department of Management and Engineering (IEI)

The Department of Management and Engineering (IEI) strengthens and develops tomorrow’s industry, business world and society by ground-breaking research, education and innovation. 

Our teaching and research cover a broad spectrum of fields from economics and management to technology and design. We are a department that sees innovation, development and innovation as fundamentally necessary to strengthen a sustainable society. Collaboration and dialogue permeate our operations, making positive and productive relationships with companies and other organisations possible. This in turn helps to make our students highly sought-after, and ensures that research can be used to increase competitiveness and sustainability.

 

The Department of Management and Engineering has more than 500 co-workers and 20 divisions. More than 9,000 students take our courses and programmes every year.

 

Our co-workers are the driving force for our unceasing improvement.

 

“By creating a feeling of ‘togetherness’, we create the conditions required for all to flourish and grow – and this in turn contributes to genuine commitment.”

Collaboration at IEIShow/Hide content

Collaboration with companies and organisations outside of the university is an important part of operations at IEI, and has been since the department was formed. Collaboration allows IEI researchers to contribute to the development of companies and society, while at the same time obtaining valuable knowledge and experience. In other words – a win-win situation.

Collaborate with IEI – you’ll benefit from it!
