Process Optimization

(Autumn and spring)

Tomorrow’s engineers face the challenge to make logistical processes efficient and effective by continuous improvement.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we cancelled all exchange programmes for autumn 2020. We hope to see you in spring 2021!

Process Optimization

About the course

You will learn how to improve business processes in general, and production and manufacturing processes in particular. You will be taught the relevant models to assess the process in question and learn the skills required to work in a project team; you will also receive training in how to convince management of necessary changes.

Cooperation with companies

This course is offered in cooperation with international companies, where students will be doing a project for two days per week. A short overview of companies where we have accomplished projects: Scania, Unilever Ola, Bosch Nefit, Abbott.

Group work

You will work in a group with Dutch students and you follow classes with other international students. This will help you to develop intercultural skills. Process Optimization starts every year in fall (September up to January).

Credits back home

As an international exchange student at Windesheim, you will get study credits that may count towards the qualification you are studying for back home. So studying at to Windesheim doesn’t have to mean extending your overall study time. You will make a ‘learning agreement’ covering your stay.

Entry Requirements

Two years of bachelor studies in a relevant field and English-language skills at B2 level.

Total ECTS Credits: 30
Level: Bachelor
