The aim of this programme is to meet the needs of both graduates and their employers. This scheme will provide graduates with the advanced technical and managerial skills needed to enhance innovation and business competitiveness. New and emerging technologies will be taught in conjunction with business and management applications.
The programme provides graduates with practical, flexible, supported training leading to recognised qualifications. The programme offers organisations the opportunity to develop and motivate key staff with minimum time disruption.
The flexibility of the programme allows graduates and their employers to choose the programme most suited to their needs. This innovative flexible training programme offers a range of modules which can be combined to achieve degree awards.
Modules are delivered by a combination of distance learning material and one week intensive 'schools'. Each module has a credit rating of 10 points and requires 100 hours study time.
Students on the MTEC programme can use a system called 'Blackboard' which is a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). This is a web based course delivery and management system and allows students to gain access to course materials and communicate with tutors and their peers via a discussion board system.
