FuturProd strives to be a leader in the development of sustainable organizations and technologies for Industries of the Future in order to innovate production and consumption trends. Its objective is to train a new generation of scientists capable of driving European industrial production systems towards more sustainable ones, including human development and environmental concerns alongside digital opportunities. Topics addressed are related to technological innovations and new materials, industrial engineering and new organizational methods, economic analyses, organizational changes and business transformation.

This program trains expert talents in Industrial and Mechanical Engineering, Material Sciences and Economics for their contribution to the sustainable production with an open-minded multidisciplinary approach. The student develops knowledge on both his/her own specialty (Industrial/Mechanical engineering, Material sciences or Economics) and through multidisciplinary courses that make understand the transition toward a sustainable production. Internships in research laboratories (3 ECTS at M1 level then one semester at M2 level) immerses the student in high-level research practices and environments.
