Turning innovations into innovative products requires the control of industrial design processes for bringing to market within a reasonable time and price, while providing assurance of their quality and safety. Increasingly, quality and safety requirements also concern the manufacturing process. All these processes involve various human, managerial, technical and financial skills, taking the influence of many external constraints into account (regulatory, normative, legal, and societal, as well as technological).


The Master of Science in Industrial and Safety Engineering aims to train specialists providing answers to these new industrial and societal expectations in an international context. At the end of the degree, the student will be able to manage the quality and the risks of technological systems (products and facilities) relating to their specification, their design, their implementation, their manufacturing and their operation, and to provide insurance of the actual quality and risk control in a legal, economic and social environment.
