Responsible teacher: professors of the Department of Production Responsible organization: Department of Production Language(s) of instructions: English, completion language: English Graiding: scale 1-5 or fail Additional information: Mandatory to all doctoral students who have started their studies 1.8.2014 or after that.
Industrial engineering involves the design, organization, implementation, and economic operations of integrated production and service systems using people, materials, and equipment.
This enrichment is provided along with a more general curricular education, mainly oriented to the domain of research methodologies and qualitative and quantitative methods to support research.
The goal is to achieve an objective of methodological nature, ensuring the establishment of basic foundations, to build upon, strong and consistently, the production of new knowledge.
Moreover, it should be noted, that the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering evidences a sustained and diversified experience of doctorates in these scientific domains, naturally potentiating the conditions of success for the development of research projects.
The proposed curricular route offers the doctoral students the opportunity to update their knowledge in some of the above mentioned areas.This transversal character is reflected on the diverse range of areas where such knowledge frontier broadening can cover.Indeed, the proposed studies plan offers areas such as Logistics, the Operations Management, the Quality Engineering, Information Technologies and Systems, or Ergonomics.Courses should include studies in philosophy of science and at least one course of quantitative/ qualitative research methods.Mandatory course to every new doctoral student starting from 1.8.2014: TUTA4050 Industrial Management Seminars Credits: 6 ECTSLearning Outcomes: Seminar will support doctoral students´ progress in studies and research work so that the doctoral degree can be finished within target time.Tríptico Doutoramento Vacancies for 2019/2020: 15 Admission rules: The 3rd study cycle leading to the Doctor in Industrial Engineering is aimed for Master's Degree holders in Industrial Engineering, Management and related fields.Also aplly can holders of a:• Degree course with a rating less than fourteen with a particularly relevant academic or scientific curriculum recognized as attesting capacity to accomplish this study cycle by the Scientific Council;• Academic, scientific or professional curriculum recognized by FCT/NOVA’s Scientific Council as attesting capacity to carry out the doctoral program.In any case, their ability to develop, integrate, communicate and learn new concepts will, in a more strict sense, be an added value for the organizations in which they are integrated and, in a more broad sense, to the whole society.Structure Doctors in Industrial Engineering may work at Universities and Higher Education Institutions and Polytechnics, laboratories and research and development, public or private companies and public administration.The aim of the doctoral program in Industrial Engineering is to offer high-level education in this scientific, enlarging the knowledge frontiers.The Industrial Engineering has a markedly cross-domain character.
