PROCESS & ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (HONOURS)


What is the programme about?


The Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Process and Engineering Management is a Level 8 one year add-on programme that has been designed to provide students with an engineering or science based Level 7 degree, with a set of both technical and transferrable skills that are widely applicable to industry.


The development of this programme is a direct response to feedback and requirements from industry. The companies surveyed stated that engineering graduates were lacking the necessary skill set and process knowledge to work effectively in an industrial environment.


The programme utilises industrial case studies, requires significant independent learning and engagement with local industry. Learners actively work with various companies to carry out research for their dissertation, apply applied process improvement techniques and create project plans that are beneficial to the companies.


To allow for this, the programme is structured as follows.


• Two major modules in the form of Applied Process Improvement and Project Management


• Two minor modules in the form of Engineering Operations Management and Statistical Process Control


• A dissertation module


On completion of the Applied Process Improvement module learners can also complete the America green belt six sigma exam resulting in green belt certification.


An overview of feedback from industry shows that there are not enough third level combination engineering and management programmes, this programme meets this gap. Industry also requires a more rounded individual for the manufacturing and service provision. A graduate with an insight into project and people management is seen as an asset in modern industry.


Who is the programme suited to?


This Level 8 Honours Degree in Process & Engineering Management is a follow-on programme for any graduate who has successfully completed an Engineering or Science Level 7 degree. For example, graduates from the following LIT Level 7 Degree programmes can apply to progress onto this honours degree programme:


LC285 Mechanical Engineering


LC286 Road Transport Technology & Management LC279 Electronic Engineering


LC278 Renewable & Electrical Energy Systems Modules


Applied Process Improvement, Project Management, Statistical Process Control, Engineering Operations Management and Dissertation module.


What can I do after the programme?


On successful completion of the programme, opportunities for graduates include jobs such as: Process Engineer, Manufacturing Engineer, Validation Engineer, Quality Engineer, Operations Engineer, Operations Management, Project Manager, New Product Introduction Engineer, Validation Engineer, Process Improvement Engineer, Continuous Improvement Engineer, Logistics Management.
