This programme provides graduates with a wide range of professional skills and competencies that are transferable within business sectors and from sector to sector. Oral and written skills are developed enabling individuals to grow in confidence through the programme of study.
Typical career opportunities include shift manager, production supervisor, engineering manager, quality manager, planning and scheduling manager, operations manager/director. All our graduates who have studied part-time have received promotion while studying, or after completing their studies, and attributed this to their qualification. Younger graduates have found their employment prospects were enhanced and they were able to gain employment as a line engineer, quality engineer and supply chain specialist. A number of major companies have now recognised this course as a key requisite for promotion or to hold a particular role.
It is possible to complete the course without incurring any additional costs, but students should expect to have to pay for the cost of attending project meetings at companies and student visits.
"I found the course really interesting, it had a good level of detail and prepared me well for the workplace. I was lucky enough to gain a full-time contract as a manufacturing engineer which enabled me to apply what I had learnt. All of this has enabled me to secure a place on one of the top graduate engineering training programmes in the country as a graduate project manager."
