“The MSc in Technology Management offered both flexibility and structure by setting out a clear timetable from the very start of year 1, which outlined the content of the modules and the examination methods. Module assessment enabled me to analyse and improve on every day work practices, in addition to opening discussions with company employees and managers. The overall course content was sufficiently comprehensive to greatly help me set-up my own technology led company”.
“I found the Diploma in Innovation Management to be very stimulating and applicable to my role. I found that after each subject there was a new initiative I had begun or that I had a renewed professional interest in certain aspects of my organisation’s business. As I have now progressed onto the MSc in Technology Management, I can now appreciate that the diploma was a good way of gradually reintroducing myself back into third level education.”
“There is an excellent combination of observing, reading, discussion forums, assignments and studying. This combination along with the method of delivery allows the student flexibility in maintaining a good balance between work, study and personal life … and having instant access to the course via the internet; you never feel distant from your classmates or lecturers. The Diploma in Commercialisation Technology has been a real accelerator to my post-graduate education and has been an excellent stepping stone to the Masters programme which I am now pursuing.”
I found the whole experience totally rewarding, I have now completed the degree and in the process I have made many friends from different industries and changed my career direction to engineering in the Medical Devices industry. The interaction and support between classmates and tutors is great and the course subjects are interesting and applicable. The blend of continuous assessment coupled with end of semester exams caters well for students with different learning skills.
The Lean & Quality Systems course was very beneficial as it outlined the requirements needed for improving industry standards and output within an organisation. This course helped me greatly understand the efforts being made at my organisation to improve the operations and bring about the best quality product possible for the customer. The Lean & Quality Systems course gave me a greater understanding of the techniques used to create the best possible product with the least amount of defects. This course is extremely helpful for anyone wanting to be involved in progressing within their organisation and providing input to improve their organisation’s product and output.
