Semester in Production Management and Automation

IMT Nord Europe has developed a range of programs provided in English.

International students get the opportunity to study semesters totally taught in English.


General Objectives

Industrial processes are getting more and more complex. Managing such systems as efficiently as possible requires a rational organization of the production means and a large use of automated devices: production machines, AGV for the plants internal logistics, Programmable Logic Controller, Supervision Systems, etc. In this context, the automation engineer needs to be aware of the constraints that apply to a manufacturing system, as well as he has to be familiar enough with the world of production to be able to provide the sets of solutions that really fit the problems. On the other hand, he needs to master “state of the art” systems control approaches that make the manufacturing systems more competitive.

The objective of this program is to provide a solid background in terms of production management and systems control. After the successful completion of this track, the students should be able to clearly understand the objectives of an industrial automatization project, as well as the constraints that the solutions must meet. The courses provide a large set of tools from which they can pick up methods that fit the problem an effective way. Numerous lab exercises are proposed so that the students can get practical skills regarding their ability to effectively deploy the designed solutions, whatever it deals with process automation or process management.

Evaluations are conducted at the end of each period with dedicated exams or project defense or report.



To apply to this exchange semester, we require that you hold at least a Bachelor of Science or equivalent (B.Eng., Licence scientifique, etc.)

Besides, you need to have a B2 level in English. And you must provide a document attesting your English language knowledge (TOEIC, TOEFL, IELTS…)

Application deadline

We advise that you start as early as possible, it may take time to gather all supporting documents necessary to your application.

The application deadline is June 15th, 2023 for next intake in Fall 2023.

Selection procedure

Step 1: The Admission Team reviews your application documents together with the submitted application form. If your application is selected for further consideration, we will notify you by e-mail and give instructions on the next step to take.

Step 2: You will be interviewed by the International department and the programme coordinator (videoconference).

Step 3: Following the interview process, a feedback will be given to all students. If you are admitted to IMT Nord Europe, congratulations and welcome!
