Engineering Operations and Improvement
This course is aimed at engineers who want to move into engineering management and operations, targeting organisational improvement whilst maintaining their competencies in technical subjects. The course enables you to identify the learning required for your personal development, in conjunction with advice from your employers (where relevant) to ensure the learning identified meets the capability requirements of your sponsoring organisation. The alignment of all modules within the programme to the UK-SPEC competences, ensures skill gaps can be easily identified and filled through this study programme. This course focuses on the need to ensure operational issues required to support organisational strategy can be easily identified, planned for and implemented.
This course has been designed for those with both standard academic qualifications and those with non-standard, work-based experience. Applications will be assessed on an individual basis. You may have an Honours degree in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, physics or another engineering subject, normally 2.2 or above. Alternative combinations of qualifications and work experience will be considered. Applications from such candidates are strongly encouraged, as it is recognised there are many different routes through professional development, beyond a 1st degree.
Modules include: Professional development appraisal and continuous review; engineering project management; technical business operations; research methods; lean engineering. Option modules include: Design project; simulation; leading change.
The course is usually assessed through coursework based on a case study exercise or actual projects in your organisation.
