You can enter the IEM Master’s programme if you have a Bachelor's degree in Industrial Engineering & Management or another relevant field. A basic requirement is that, regardless of your prior education, your proficiency in English and Mathematics B is at the level of the Dutch ‘VWO’ high school.

If your educational background does not meet the IEM Master’s requirements, we may require you to follow a pre-Master's programme  before you can be admitted to the Master’s programme – for example, when you have a small deficiency on topics that are important for starting the Master’s programme, or when you graduated from a university of applied sciences (‘HBO’ in Dutch). A Pre-Master’s programme takes three or six months and is designed to help you get your academic skills and your knowledge up to par. The IEM pre-Master’s programme can be tailored to your educational background, if necessary.
