Course summary

This course provides an essential foundation for future leaders in organisations who wish to optimise the value in-use and cost in-use for long-life engineering assets such as planes, trains, ships, vehicles, power-plants, machine tools, buildings etc.

Many of the premier UK industrial organisations are increasingly dependent upon Through-life Engineering Services (TES) to compete, gain market share, generate revenue and profit. This course offers through-life thinking to enable change leaders in organisations to embrace new and integrated approaches to develop superior through-life support capability to meet shareholder and stakeholder demands.

Who is it for?

Developed by Cranfield University in conjunction with Rolls-Royce and Bombardier Transportation, this MSc has been designed for individuals at organisations where there is a growing emphasis on revenue being derived from providing the services that keep products operating effectively, rather than the design, manufacture and delivery of original equipment (hardware). The individual will be engaged in a discipline related to through-life management, support, asset management, and/or maintenance. The course is relevant to TES dependent organisations, engineers, business administrators, logistics, finance and commercial practitioners.

We aim to enhance your skills, and address the need for highly trained individuals involved in the support of complex equipment and systems. The skills gained in the course is expected to contribute to the achievement of competitive advantage for your organisation. The course is structured to allow maximum benefit from learning with minimum time away from the working environment.

Focused on educating leaders in the fields of through-life engineering services systems, design and planning, maintenance assessment and operations management, engineering and technology including condition-based maintenance and health management, standards and regulation, information technology, contracts and policy, life extension and obsolescence management, cost modelling and control.

Why this course?

There are two major themes within the Course:

The business context: this aims to define the business opportunity, capabilities required, plan the business change to move to TES, and analyse the provision vs consumption trade-off.
The execution activities: this focuses on the design and delivery of the processes and activities that make up the delivery and consumption of TES, and how to optimise the value proposition across the supply network.

Accreditation

Re-accreditation for the MSc in Manufacturing Technology and Management is currently being sought with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining (IOM3) and Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.

Your career

Successful completion of this course takes you onto careers with higher levels of responsibility, a broader base of skills and capability and a greater level of professionalism.
