Industrial Relations


IE&M Affiliates Program

The Industrial Engineering & Management Affiliates Program (IE&M AP) is dedicated to the creation of mutual cooperation between academia and leading industrial companies in Israel and abroad. We believe that by establishing strong long-term relations between academia and industry we can promote mutually important values focusing on knowledge, development, innovativeness, leadership and excellence.

The Industrial Engineering & Management Affiliates Program (IE&M AP) was established in 2010. The IE&M AP stimulates and supports the mutual needs of business, industry and academia in applied research & development, teaching, human resources, public relations and advertising.
