This study programme is recognised by the 2016 Keuzegids HBO as one of the Netherlands’ top Industrial Maintenance Management programmes.

In the Industrial Engineering & Management study programme you focus entirely on international maintenance management.

Every day, hundreds of people board aeroplanes. You are responsible for ensuring that these aeroplanes are in a good state of repair. You manage the maintenance of large ships, sustainable energy generation, or machines in factories. Not just for technical companies, but also in the care sector and for the government. You do not carry out the maintenance yourself, but you ensure that it takes place. And convince management that it is necessary.

You will study complex technical systems in depth. You will know what you are talking about when you design and record maintenance procedures. Or explain them to the engineers who will carry out the maintenance. You will learn to predict how long a machine will last. And when it is time for large-scale maintenance. So you can preclude risks and monitor safety. You will also learn about management structures. Planning and execution. Materials management. Cost analysis. And logistical matters.

Career opportunities

As a Bachelor of Engineering, you will be able to work anywhere in the world. In aviation, shipping, energy or infrastructure. For commercial or non-profit companies. For example, you could lead a maintenance team. Or work as a maintenance consultant responsible for maintaining a refinery, power plant or wind farm. Your career prospects will be excellent.

In a number of sectors, the demand for maintenance experts is growing. They are needed in ever increasing numbers. Due to technical developments and the recession.

Potential Careers:
- Maintenance Consultant – For companies that have outsourced maintenance (knowledge).
- Maintenance Manager – Head of a maintenance department within a (production) company.
- (Assistant) Project Manager – Large-scale installation maintenance is often carries out in a project-based manner. This is the case with refineries and power plants, for example. These big jobs often involve hundreds of (outside) people.
- Reliability Engineer – Optimisation of maintenance and management programmes.
- Asset Manager – An asset manager is responsible for the lifespan of a production resource (asset). Its acquisition, introduction and, finally, removal determine this lifespan. Together with the maintenance of the asset.
