Facts about the study programme

The Faculty of Engineering at SDU offers an Industrial MSc study programme in Engineering – Operations Management. As a candidate following this study programme, you study part-time and you hold down a study-relevant job of at least 25 hours a week.

The four-year study programme brings you to the same academic level as a full-time two-year MSc programme. The difference is that the four-year Industrial MSC programme does not entitle you to a Danish education grant (SU). Instead, you have part-time employment and are paid by the company you work for. As a candidate on this study programme, you are obliged to substantiate that you have a relevant job – We are on hand to help you with this.

The same formal entry requirements apply as to any other Industrial MSc or post-graduate degree programme.

Teaching takes place at SDU in Odense (and occasionally at Campus Kolding) and in an international study environment. The programme is taught in English.
