Industrial engineering includes fields that are required by practice. It combines the technical knowledge of engineering with the knowledge of business management. The effort and task of an industrial engineer is to make the most effective use of corporate resources (financial resources, production, information, knowledge and skills of the people themselves). The goal is to optimize and improve both production and non-production processes. This subject is focused on the complete solution of individual problems. There are mostly topical topics coming from solution of the research tasks of the Department of Mechanical Technology or of the contractual research tasks of this department, possibly individually obtained topics from technical practice. The work is individual, while other academic staff are involved in solving the problem large parts are also consultants from companies that are the developers of the problem. Frequently part of the solution of the given problems is the work in the assigning company, consultations with industry experts, lectures of practitioners. Given that this subject is significant degree is based on independent student work, consultations and possible work in the company, independent search and study of literature and other of resources, the subject is ranked by a higher number of credits in relation to the number of hours scheduled for consultations than is usual for the others of study subjects.
