MESG - Master in Services Engineering and Management (University of Porto)

Our colleague Joao Falcao informs:
The Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) is starting this September the 2nd Edition of the Master in Services Engineering and Management www.fe.up.pt/mesg (MESG: Mestrado em Engenharia de Serviços e Gestão), a 2 year (120 ECTS) programme, under the Bologna framework.
This Master in Service Engineering and Management aims at developing competences to conceive, design, implement and operate technology enabled service systems. MESG is directed to graduates in Engineering, Science, Economics or Management, who want to develop their career in service development, design and management, either in services or in the manufacturing industries.
During the 2 year period, master students may choose to study a semester in other University under a similar approved programme. The final semester involves a full-time project in the context of an external organization or in a research unit of the University, in both cases under academic supervision.
This master programme has received strong support from several institutions, such as IBM, McKinsey, Accenture, Wipro, IBS, CPC-HS, Banco BPI, Deloitte, SONAE, SAGE, Novabase, and Portugal Telecom. These companies and FEUP will sponsor the best candidates in their master projects.
FEUP has several well established research and academic exchange programmes with many European and Brazilian universities, e.g., under the ERASMUS and MOBILE initiatives, and is involved in several joint research and academic initiatives with leading USA universities, such as the MIT, CMU and UTA. FEUP is a member of CEASER, Conference of European Schools for Advanced Engineering Education and Research.
This Master in Services Engineering and Management follows from the long and successful experience of the University of Porto in related programmes, in particular the following ones:
· MIEIG – Master in IEM - Industrial Engineering and Management, established in 1991, the top programme in IEM in Portugal, according to www.fup.pt (in Portuguese).
· MIEIC – Master in Informatics and Computing Engineering, established in 1994, the top programme in ICE in Portugal, according to www.fup.pt (in Portuguese).
· DEIG – Doctorate in IEM - Industrial Engineering and Management, established in 2003, the unique IEM doctorate programme in IEM in Portugal.

I believe construction of such projects requires knowledge of engineering and management principles and business procedures, economics, and human behavior.
