The increase in the variability of the manufactured product range forces companies to look for opportunities to improve the flexibility of the production and logistics process and intensively develop cooperative ties. This is particularly important in the context of contemporary concepts such as Industry 4.0 or Smart Factory. The development of enterprises has been oriented towards the automation of production, logistics, integration of IT systems, comprehensive improvement of quality and productivity as well as more effective use of human capital. At the same time, the importance of professions associated with planning, implementation and management of production and logistics as well as service enterprises is constantly increasing, which is related with high demand on the labor market for managers and specialists in this field. It is expected that enterprises will increasingly be looking for employees able to integrate unique knowledge and skills in the modern approach to planning and implementation of the production process with taking into account technical, organizational, economic and social aspects.

The PRODUCTION AND LOGISTIC SYSTEMS IN INDUSTRIAL ENTERPRISES (P&L) specialty was created to provide students with the most up-to-date knowledge, practical skills and competences in this area. Studies at the P&L specialization are a good choice for people who want to learn how to solve engineering problems creatively. The specialization prepares students for professional work in the field of broadly understood organization of production and operational processes and logistics as well. Moreover, for students who are planning scientific development it creates opportunities for comprehensive education combined with research work and practical implementations.



The major objective of the field of study Management and Production Engineering in the specialization of Production and Logistic Systems in Industrial Enterprises is delivery of professional Master of Science, suitable for the needs of production and logistic systems in the conditions of free-market economy who is able to:

  •  Combine engineering knowledge in the area of production and logistic systems with the knowledge related to business administration,
  • Design production and  logistic systems and organize processes in the enterprise,
  • Organize properly the logistic, production and auxiliary processes in the enterprise,
  • Manage the resources of an enterprise in line with its needs, particularly from the perspective of logistic and production processes,
  • Manage the personnel in the enterprise,
  • Use of the IT and ICT systems especially in the areas of production process improvement,  logistic planning and execution in a proficient way.

Particularly the P&L specialty is recommended to students who tie their future with work in modern industrial enterprises adapting to the requirements of Industry 4.0. The specialty emphasizes the transfer of knowledge and skills, among others, in the organization of production and logistics processes, resource management, optimization of production and maintenance costs, as well as the use of IT tools in the enterprise. In addition to technical knowledge, students also acquire the necessary comprehensive knowledge and skills regarding organizational, economic and social issues as well as legal aspects of functioning of enterprises, which is a significant advantage over other engineering fields of studies. A graduate of the P&L specialty is characterized by understanding the mechanisms of functioning of production and logistics processes occurring in enterprises, and is also prepared to take innovative initiatives and decisions related to running a business. A very important advantage of these studies is therefore a comprehensive education, which guarantees the necessary preparation for management and work in interdisciplinary teams in manufacturing and service enterprises, logistics enterprises, industrial laboratories or consulting and design offices. During this studies it is transferred the engineering and managerial knowledge along with practical skills in this area.
