Innovation is the main characteristic of the Industrial Engineering, which specialises in complex industrial products. Its teams combine the necessary expertise for a comprehensive process, from product design to product industrialisation. Their work is dedicated to optimising the development process throughout product life cycles and to developing innovative products.
The first field covers a wide range of subjects: integrated design and collaboration approaches; innovation methods; the definition of new production processes for industrial applications; the product/process/organisation combination applied to product development; and special engineering tools dedicated to several fields, such as geometric modelling and digital models.
For the development of innovative products, work is undertaken in three directions: designs and emerging trends; intelligent mechatronic products and systems; and specific architecture for products with very high dynamic performance.
The Department of Industrial Engineering offers eight Master's programme specialities:
Integrated conception and innovation, with two possible courses at the Arts et Métiers Paris Campus:
Knowledge integration in mechanical production, with three-course options:
- Design and Manufacturing (DM) at the Arts et Métiers Paris Campus
- Advanced Production Systems (APS) at the Arts et Métiers Lille Campus
- Conception intégrée et innovation (CII) at the Arts et Métiers Metz Campus
Management of 3D interactive technologies (MTI 3D) with two-course options:
- Digital engineering at the Chalon-sur-Saone Arts et Métiers Institute
- Virtual engineering and innovation
