The School of Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM) was established to attract top talent and educate and prepare them to become leaders in Logistics & Supply Chain Management (LSCM) and Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISE) fields in Vietnam and other countries. The School of IEM offers programs to satisfy the needs of industrial development, research, education, and entrepreneurship in LSCM and ISE.


2009: The Industrial and Systems Engineering Department was founded at International University with an Industrial and Systems Engineering bachelor’s program.

2014: Logistics and Supply Chain Management bachelor program was added to The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering.

2019: The School of Industrial Engineering and Management was established at International University with an Industrial and Systems Engineering bachelor’s program and a Logistics and Supply Chain Management bachelor’s program.


The School of IEM follows and inherits most of the educational philosophy of International University (IU), namely comprehensive, liberal, and global.

Comprehensive: To offer multidisciplinary and holistic training (intellectual, physical, moral, emotional, soft skills, professional & specialized knowledge together with a broad general knowledge base).

Liberal: To provide an education focused on liberal thinking and behaviors with the aim of reaching world elitist standards. To develop students’ potential to the fullest, equipping them with the necessary knowledge and skills as well as preparing them for a complex, diverse, and changing world. To promote critical thinking, alongside the sense of individual and social responsibility.

Pioneering: To generate new knowledge, fostering innovation and creativity in teaching and research activities.

Global: To build an international academic community, in line with Vietnam’s strategy of global integration, contributing to the overall development of the world.


The School of IEM always aims to take a leadership role in education and academic research in ISE and LSCM in Vietnam.


  • Offering high-quality graduate and undergraduate education
  • Providing excellent research including basic and applied research to meet the needs of industry, local provinces, and society
  • Taking the pioneering role in developing the IEM field in Vietnam by promoting the application of IEM in various manufacturing and service sectors in Vietnam

The School of IEM views itself as a system that places a priority on students’ results. Therefore, students are the main drivers of all teaching and other related activities. Its objectives are to:

  • Maintain an excellent quality of teaching and learning
  • Recruit and retain highly qualified faculty and staff to support the teaching, research, and service missions of the School of IEM
  • Enhance the learning environment to support teaching and research activities
  • Attract excellent local and international students
  • Enhance collaboration with the industry and other prestigious educational institutions

The undergraduate programs of IEM will provide students with theoretical knowledge and hands-on practice in designing, operating, improving, and optimizing manufacturing and service systems.

There are two types of programs at IEM:

  • IU Program (4 years at IU) Degree: Bachelor of Industrial & Systems Engineering or Logistics & Supply Chain Management degree awarded by the International University
  • Partner Programs (2 years at IU + 2 years at IU’s overseas partner universities) Degree: Bachelor of Industrial & Systems Engineering or Logistics & Supply Chain Management degree awarded by overseas partner universities such as Rutgers University, The State University of New Jersey, and University at Binghamton, The State University of New York (USA)

After graduating, students will be capable of:

  • Pursuing higher education by successfully competing for prestigious scholarships to enter world-class programs abroad, or
  • Becoming outstanding ISE/LSCM engineers who can find jobs in Production, Material & Inventory, Logistics and Supply Chain, Quality Management, Planning & Scheduling, Design & Layout fields, and in several organizations/agencies:
    • Manufacturing fields: Foreign companies, state-owned and private enterprises.
    • Service fields: Hospital, hotel, airport, retail services, and distribution.
    • Research & Development: Universities, training, and research centers.
    • Governmental organizations (national and provincial): the Ministry/Department of Science and Technology, Department of Transport and Communication.
    • Project management units of national and international projects related to industrial fields.
    • Research Orientation
  • Multi-Criteria Decision Making: Establishing and solving multi-objective and multi-criteria decision-making problems with applications in management and engineering.
  • Scheduling and Sequencing Optimization for service and manufacturing systems: Establishing and solving scheduling & sequencing problems.
  • Mathematical Programming and Operations Research: Integer Programming, Nonlinear Programming, Convex Analysis, Generalized Convexity, Nonsmooth Analysis, Variational Inequality, and Equilibrium Problems. Applying Linear and Nonlinear programming in manufacturing fields.
  • Logistics & Supply Chain Management: Transportation problems, Supply chain design problems, Supply chain optimization problems.
  • Simulation and Modeling: Simulation and Modeling of complicated service and manufacturing systems using discrete simulation techniques; Integrating simulation techniques and optimization techniques; Simulation of transportation systems, service systems, and supermarkets
