The Program was created in 1967, a pioneer on its subject. Its interdisciplinary mandate seeks connections between natural, social, and health sciences admitting to quantitative and qualitative approaches. As a result, it works on broad themes both in terms of scientific and engineering, system design, assessment and management involving people, materials, equipment and the environment. This has supported a variety of studies and projects in many different fields of industry, agriculture, services, public administration and social initiatives. PEP students have the opportunity of gaining a production engineer’s perspective and the qualities of versatility and interdisciplinarity in their graduate passage. The program is organized into two areas: Management & Innovation (GI) and Decision & Management Engineering (EDG).
