ScAIEM

The Scandinavian Academy of Industrial Engineering and Management aims to strengthen academic education and research within the field of Industrial Engineering and Management in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

Industrial Engineering and Management is one of the most successful fields in contemporary engineering education. It attracts good students, produces highly attractive engineers, and has expanded significantly during the last decades. There is a strong demand in society for management knowledge at the interface of technology and engineering. By addressing managerial issues, like effectiveness, innovation, and sustainability, in engineering contexts, industrial engineering and management ought to be at the forefront enabling global competitiveness.

As an academic field however, industrial engineering and management is scattered. There is a strong need to strengthen our professional community to enhance our academic identity and further develop our education, research, and societal impact. Consequently, the Scandinavian Academy of Industrial Engineering and Management (ScAIEM) was founded in 2012. By sharing experiences, discuss common issues, and getting to know each other better, the aim is to create a thriving professional association for all management scholars of the engineering faculties in the Nordic region.
