In 1963 Industria was founded by students of the faculty of Industrial Engineering in Eindhoven. Currently the association has grown to about 1,100 members and is one of the largest study associations of Eindhoven.

The goal of our assocation is to fulfill the needs of Industrial Engineering students in the broadest definition possible. Currently we try to meet our goals by taking care of the following:
- We support our students in studying industrial engineering;
- We try to organize a lot of activities in which students can gain useful skills, knowledge or experience;
- We help students in orienting on the job market;
- Integration between the different students industrial engineering.

We strive to organize our activities on a professional, high quality level while fulfilling at least one of the goals above. Our activities are organized by and meant for our own students and through this they gain useful knowledge which is an excellent fit to the existing curriculum on this faculty. Industria can only accomplish all these goals because of the tight band with the faculty, the good relations with the other student associations and the excellent contacts with our sponsors.
