Our course will develop the skills you need to interface with functional users, other than engineers, giving you an informed view for further configuration or customisation.


You will be equipped for the next step in your career in manufacturing and service operations. Most business organisations that implement ERP solutions use fully-trained, qualified implementation partners and consultants throughout their lifecycle.

Businesses, ERP solution providers, and consulting organisations require top calibre trained ERP consultants and users. Possessing the unique skill-set will be a differentiator when you compete in the employment market.

Programme Structure

Core topics include ERP, continuous improvement and operations management with options of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Project Management and modules with further planning and management of resources.

If you are an MSc student then you will undertake a dissertation, selecting a specialism to achieve a greater understanding of the implementation and advanced use of software applications, management initiatives and planning within an engineering setting. There may be scope to integrate this dissertation with industry, where an engineering supervisor will be allocated to assist your MSc journey and to advise and introduce you to industry links.
