Since 1967, the Department of Industrial Engineering of PUC-RIO (DEI) is continuously working to offer excellent education both in the undergraduate and in graduate levels, contributing to train highly qualified human resources and to develop state-of-the-art research which is published in highly-impact, qualified scientific journals.
At the undergraduate level, the department offers the Production Engineering course, training students for a global environment and providing them with a socioeconomic perspective. International cooperation with highly-qualified international institutions is continuously and strongly stimulated through International Programs. Presently, the undergraduate course in Production Engineering is responsible for almost half of the engineers that graduate at PUC-Rio each year, who are avidly absorbed by the market.
At the graduate level, the department trains highly qualified researchers and professionals by offering three courses: the Doctor Degree in Production Engineering and the Master Degree in Production Engineering in the areas of Production Management, Finance and Investment Analysis, and Transport and Logistics and the Professional Master Degree in Logistics.
The Department of Industrial Engineering also provides students and researchers with modern infrastructure including high-performance computing (HPC) labs and resources for both traditional and online teaching.
