2 Who are expected today Degree students OML
So, the following students are not addressed now: Exchange students Premaster students who have not yet been admitted to take graduate courses Students that have not completed their Bachelor program as they cannot be admitted to graduate classes /School of Industrial Engineering

3 Credit system European Credit Transfer System
Based on student estimated workload 1 ects = 28 hrs of workload Graduate courses: 5 ects (all full semester courses) Exception: language and communication courses Deficiency courses: 5 ects (but half semester course) 30 ects in one semester Typically 6 courses per semester /School of Industrial Engineering

4 Academic Calendar 2 semesters 2 quarters per semester
8 weeks of classes per quarter 2 weeks exams per quarter Make-up exams in August A1 A2 B3 B4 /School of Industrial Engineering

5 Registration Course registration is not required
Except for language classes Except if teacher indicated this for team formation However, course registration is strongly recommended via OASE Exam registration is required Taking exam without being registered: exam will not be graded Withdraw exam registration if you decide not to take the exam (otherwise a no-show will appear on your grade list) Except if there is no written exam /School of Industrial Engineering

6 OASE: Adding and dropping courses
Always add the course to your OASE course list Deregister from the course if you decide to drop the course (as a courtesy to the professor and your fellow students) If a course contains team work, make a commitment to your team mates for the entire semester or drop the course in the first week In principle, do not match up with exchange students during your team work /School of Industrial Engineering

7 Pilot with new Learning Management System: CANVAS
1CM65 1CM05 1BM05 Initial registration via OASE, manual transfer to Canvas /School of Industrial Engineering

8 OML: many different research interests by mentors
Incentives and motivation Impact of stress and well-being on performance business process modeling ICT architectures software engineering production planning inventory control & supply chain planning Operational finance Quality and reliability engineering /School of Industrial Engineering

9 Program Composition Core courses (compulsory): 30 ects
Restricted Electives: maximum 30 ects Free Electives: minimum 20 ects Master Thesis: Preparation: 10 ects Thesis work itself: 30 ects /School of Industrial Engineering

10 Program structure Master Thesis Semester 3 Semester 2 Semester 4

11 Core courses 1JM11 - Performance Enhancement (Fall)
1CM22 – Integrated Financial & Operations Management (Spring) 0LM05 – Philosophy of Management Science (Fall) 1ZM31 – Multivariate statistics (Spring) One out of two: 1BM05 - Business Process Management (Fall) 1BM41 – Business Information System Architectures (Spring) 1CM10 – Modeling & Analysis of Manufacturing Systems (Fall) 1CM25 – Supply Chain Operations Planning (Spring) /School of Industrial Engineering

12 Electives Restricted electives max. 30 ects to be approved by mentor
Free electives Any graduate course at TU/e Any graduate course at another Dutch university (for EU students only and subject to admission) Except where indicated or if there is a clear overlap with an IE undergraduate course or a graduate course already listed At least 10 credits in C category (business / social sciences) /School of Industrial Engineering

13 Mentor system Select mentor at the end of your first semester
When you study according to the planned speed One semester later if you will need 2.5 years for the whole program, and so on Role of mentor: assistance with composition of study program approval of restricted electives advise on study, incl international semester assistance with selection and preparation of thesis topic and thesis proposal (and company if needed) supervision of thesis project The thesis topic has to match with research interests of the mentor /School of Industrial Engineering

14 Mentor matching procedure
You should register for the mentor matching procedure in the semester you want to take part via OASE, course code 1MC00 Course 1MC00 will be opened for registration on 1 March (or closely after that date). Registration will be closed one month later There will be information sessions of the various research areas (to be announced). Look already at mentor p Mentor interviews 3 subsequent weeks Mentor/student decisions and submission of forms: next 4 weeks In case of a match, the student fills in the mentor selection form and hands it in at the education administration office to definitely formalize the mentor selection. Subsequently, students that have not yet found a mentor, can continue to approach those mentors with leftover capacity Students that have not found a mentor by the end of the semester, will be allocated a mentor /School of Industrial Engineering

15 Information on mentors

16 Options within the program
Double diploma (INPG – France and KAIST- Korea) for students with undergraduate diploma at TU/e – IE Apply at admission board before end of your first semester Semester abroad for students without any TU/e administered scholarship and a standard program (no deficiencies) Healthcare track Honors Track in Research (PhD degree) Honors Track in Design (PDEng degree) /School of Industrial Engineering

17 What is an honours track?
A number of special courses, with a total load of 20 ECTS (as extra ECTS), offered to a selection of master students, to test and develop capabilities for Design: PDEng Logistics Management Systems (LMS), or Research: PhD.

18 PDEng and PhD programs SAI PDEng Logistics Management Systems
BETA PhD Operations Management & Logistics 24 months program With honors track completed: 18 months as trainee (salary/contract) Aimed at designing complex logistics systems and preparing them for full implementation Skills: system development, design, consultancy, presentations, organizational change 48 months program With honors track completed: months as research assistant (promovendus) Aimed at conducting academic research to become an independent researcher eligible for a university career Skills: methodologies, writing, research questions development, creating academic impact

19 Honors track in Design (HiD)
Offered by the following HiD mentors for OML students: Prof. Dr. Ir. Jan Fransoo Prof. Dr. Ir. Paul Grefen Prof. Dr. Ir. Geert-Jan van Houtum Prof. Dr. Ton de Kok Prof. Dr. Tom van Woensel (other professors may be added if desired)

20 Honors track in Design (HiD)
A 20 ECTS choise from LMS core courses: - Design of Advanced Planning Processes - Simulation for Design - Programming for Design - Software Development for Design - Management of Organizational Change and Implementation - Project Management in Innovation Processes - Design Assignment in Designated Areas, In addition, one can do 10 ECTS as elective.

21 Honors track in Design (HiD)
Design Assignments involve: - Assessing the value of knowledge from master courses for solving company problems, - Company visits, - Company presentations. Grading based on: - value for company, - innovativeness of solutions.

22 Honors Track in Design (HiD): Advantages
Development of extra design skills Ideal preparation for continuation in the LMS program after completion of the master program Priority for positions within the LMS program of Industrial Engineering (but, we give no guarantee) LMS program can be done within instead of 20 months

23 Honors Track in Design (HiD)
