Why this continuing education master's degree?
In a world where globalisation is increasing every day and where businesses need to compete with other countries that can offer lower production costs, working in an efficient and competitive way is very important. To reach this objective, companies must adopt the latest trends that can help them become more highly efficient. The Master's Course in Organisation and Engineering of Industrial Plant Production and Management works with all of the aspects that give financial value to companies and covers organisational aspects of engineering and management of manufacturing processes, production planning and materials and resource needs, industrial plant design and implementing productive systems.

The Engiplant Master's Course is a professional master's course that basically focuses on the practical aspects of management and only dedicates the minimum time necessary to deal with the theoretical aspects. This is the big difference between this type of course and the typical university education format. This program covers aspects such as maintenance, logistics, human resources, industrial strategies and the latest trends so that participants, far from just listening, actively participate by working in teams and study real-life cases that may have even come up students' own companies. As well there will be visits to leading companies in the industrial sectors that are of interest to students. This course offers a comprehensive teaching methodology focused on practical aspects and the most advanced techniques. The professors for this course are made up of professionals with a high level of business experience and the majority of them do not come from the university education world.

This course will end with a final project where students work in small groups, deal with real-life situations and develop improvement and analysis projects.

To make following this course easier, upon the completion of enrolment students will receive a iPad to which they can download the notes and all of the documentation from the Master's programme.

This Master's course is also being given in Pamplona as a postgraduate course. Contact us for more information.

Testimonials

Testimonials

I have been managing factories for ten years and the crisis had started to affect my company. I wanted to find a formula to save it and make it work and I thought that the Masters in Enigplant would help me with that. If I didn't manage that, at least I would also have tools for looking for other career opportunities. This course has changed the way I used to approach problems and it has made me more confident when it comes to making key decisions for the company. Things did not turn out as I had hoped in my job, but in a short space of time I found another job thanks to having completed the Masters in Enigplant, as it make me feel more secure when sitting interviews. Nowadays I think my profile is above other production or factory managers. The Lean Manofacturating module has been an extremely important part of this course. Books give you a lot of information, but it is much more gratifying to have people like Lluís Cuatrecasas or Enric Barba tell you about their experiences.
