Introduction – POSTECH IME
What is IME?
Industrial and Management Engineering is a discipline that aims to provide the best products, services, and information in a way that is optimal for humans through optimized systems.
We are pursuing an understanding of engineering technology and management by combining the contents of business administration with the existing industrial engineering field. While Industrial Engineering deals with the systematic planning, design, and optimization of complex industrial systems, Industrial and Management Engineering extends its coverage to more comprehensive fields, including the service industry, information industry, and management science.
Therefore, those who majored in Industrial and Management Engineering are multifaceted individuals who combine both engineering and business knowledge. POSTECH-IME students, equipped with both engineering acumen to solve problems and visionary leadership skills based on business intuition, are invaluable talents who will lead the national industry and the economy.
These students choose Industrial and Management Engineering.
