Official Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering and Official Master's Degree in Railway Systems (MII-MSF) Double-degree program

Logo audit medianoThis combined Master's program is composed of the MA in Industrial Engineering and the MA in Railway Systems (MSF). It equips students with general industrial engineering skills while also offering more specialized training to produce postgraduate experts in the innovation and development of railway systems.

Multidisciplinary training in industrial engineering, together with specialist knowledge of advanced railway systems, provides students with a high level of technological training so they can pursue a professional career in any of the diverse areas that make up the railway sector.

The program is designed so that students can develop the skills and abilities acquired on both degrees in two years. The increased workload, characteristic of a double-degree program, requires students to possess strong organizational, study and work-related skills. Throughout the program, students are constantly guided and supported by their lecturers and tutors.

Students who obtain the Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering can register with the ICAI's National Engineers Association and work in the legally regulated profession of Industrial Engineering.
