This Programme is designed to upskill manufacturing technicians, holding a Level 6 qualification, to a Level 7 B.Eng in Manufacturing, while working full-time.
On completion of the 60 credits, taking into consideration their level 6 qualification and relevant experience, students will have achieved the same learning outcomes as a 3 years B.Eng in Manufacturing Engineering Programme.
A Manufacturing Engineer facilitates efficient operations within the production area, to optimise existing processes, implement new processes and to ensure that production goals are met.
GMIT has been successful in its application to the Higher Education Authority (HEA) to deliver 13 new free upskilling courses at its Mayo and Galway campuses under the recently announced Springboard+ 2018 programme.
The President of GMIT, Dr Fergal Barry, warmly welcomes the appointment of the technical advisers to the Higher Education PPP programme, which includes the strategically important 5,500 m² STEM building project at GMIT’s Galway campus.
