Ecole ECAM LaSalle

Industrial Design, Manufacturing and Management Department

The Industrial Management Department is capable of analysing every aspect of business activity, from a technical, economic, organisational and human (people are at the heart of organisational performance) standpoint. The expertise of this Pole covers the entire product life cycle: analysis of client needs and market expectations, design and production, on-time delivery and the guarantee of a fair price.

The Pole offers solutions encompassing the organisation of work and management systems, industrialisation and the management of supply chain quality. Its expertise has thus become well recognised in the field of Lean Management.

The Industrial Management Pole is continuing to develop along three main axes: global performance (health and performance), organisational learning and Lean management in the development of new products.

In 2016, ECAM LaSalle confirmed its status as a pioneering school when, along with 3 other Engineering Schools in France, it obtained ‘BES&ST’ status (Health and Safety at Work Training). This qualification means that all new graduates, who will potentially be managing projects and teams in the future, will be equipped with the basic Health and Safety at Work training they will need.
