What is ESTIEM?
The organisation known as ESTIEM (European Students of Industrial Engineering and Management) was created to increase communication and cooperation between students and institutions of technology in Europe within the field of Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM). The IEM concept rests on the integration of technological understanding and management skills. The studies provide analytical capacities, engineering knowledge and practical management experiences, which make IEM students valuable since they are able to do business while understanding the underlying technology. As the demand for internationalisation is constantly growing in the uniting Europe, young people with both a European orientation and experience will be most needed.
"ESTIEM is an exciting network of open-minded students with a professional approach."
ESTIEM is the only Europe-wide organisation of IEM and represents today through its 62 member groups over 45,000 students in 25 countries. Founded in 1990, it aims at establishing and fostering interrelations among students of IEM. Multinational project teams organise a wide scope of Europe-wide activities such as exchanges, conferences, case competitions, lectures and workshops. This makes ESTIEM a unique network connecting people with different cultural backgrounds and experiences. We promote the concept of IEM by establishing contacts between students, companies and institutions. Contributing to mutual understanding across Europe, our unique ESTIEM spirit stands for overcoming borders, being open minded and combining work and fun. According to the ESTIEM spirit: “Work hard, party hard!”.
