MASTER’S THESIS PROJECT IN INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING AND MANAGEMENT

A toolkit for supervisors and students preparing their master’s thesis

The Master’s Thesis project in Industrial Engineering and Management includes a range of instructions for students and supervisors.

Master’s students in technology must complete a master’s thesis to graduate. Typically, this involves a development project commissioned by a company/organisation, which lasts for about 6 months. A master’s thesis is part of the compulsory studies and contains 30 ECTS credits.

The Master’s Thesis project in Industrial Engineering and Management toolkit was developed as a guide and as assistance for students working on their thesis and the professors who supervise them. The goal of this toolkit is not to replace supervision provided by the professor but to support it.

Materials and instructions required for the master’s thesis have been compiled here. The Master’s Thesis project in Industrial Engineering and Management toolkit also provides the basic model for completing and supervising a master’s thesis. The basic model is presented in the project section.

It can be adjusted to suit a specific project. A student starting a master’s thesis project agrees with the supervising professor on how this basic model can be applied to his or her project.
