Maintenance management has grown and developed into a significant major strategic issue for ensuring effective operation of plant and engineering systems in order to meet business objectives. The programme equips engineering graduates from a variety of disciplines with the knowledge and skills to allow them to become effective maintenance managers in a wide range of industries.
Maintenance plays a major part in ensuring the reliability of systems, planning availability of assets, health and safety, environment and product quality standards, customer service and other important areas. If these issues are not addressed, the survival of many organisations is at risk.
Historically, maintenance has been associated with the cost of labour and spare parts. With the advent of modern technology, maintenance has now evolved from a non-issue to a more strategic concern in most organisations. However, other factors such as reliability and availability, downtime and product quality can be key factors when measuring maintenance effectiveness. In addition, the objectives must be attained in accordance with environmental and safety regulations.
The programme provides suitably qualified or experienced engineers of all disciplines with, modern cost effective maintenance management techniques for the efficient operation of all types of sophisticated, complex equipment.
The programme is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). An IMechE accredited Masters is the first step on the ladder to becoming a member of IMechE and a Chartered or Incorporated Engineer (CEng/IEng).
Honours Degree from a UK university in a science or engineering subject or an equivalent qualification from an overseas institution.Candidates whose normal medium of education and work has not been English, will normally be required to present evidence of competence in English as demonstrated by a pass at Academic IELTS level 6 (with no element less than 5.5) or TOEFL Internet based test with reading at 22, listening at 21, speaking at 23 and writing at 21.
