University of Manchester launches new Master’s programme

DUBAI, December 17, 2017

The University of Manchester is launching a new industry-led part-time Master’s programme for working professionals and new engineering graduates in the Middle East.

The new MSc Reliability Engineering & Asset Management (MSc REAM) is being introduced from January 29, to help meet the region’s need for professional maintenance strategies and asset management, as the regional economy goes through a digital and industrial transformation, with new clean industries emerging and the traditional industries in managed decline, making cost management critical, said a statement.

The university has launched a series of new business Master’s programmes in the Middle East, starting with the MSc International Healthcare Leadership, which welcomed the first student cohort in September 2017.
 
Maintenance and repair costs are an integral part of doing business in many industries – from aviation to nuclear energy - and there are various options to model the appropriate maintenance strategy for the specific company within an industry.

Reliability and asset management is a sophisticated discipline embracing management techniques, organisation, planning and the application of substantial electronic, engineering and analytical knowledge to manufacturing processes, transport, power generation and the efficient operation of industrial, commercial and civic buildings.
 
The Master’s programme focuses on the practical application of theory to real-world industry needs, while students continue to work and apply their new knowledge in the workplace. It covers various aspects of applied management and technology in the field of REAM, and aims to enhance the capabilities of existing managers in the field through the programme structure and content, as well as new graduates entering the field or those with limited industry experience.

The programme’s teaching staff is internationally recognised professionals with years of experience working in industry and academic institutions. The course is fully accredited by The Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
 
Randa Bessiso, Middle East director, The University of Manchester, said: “The university is building on the success of the Middle East Centre and introducing new industry-led specialist Masters programmes designed to meet the training and development needs of working professionals in the region.”

“These part-time programmes address some of the major career opportunities in the Middle East, including healthcare leadership and asset management, and complement our very successful Global Part-time MBA programme,” Bessiso said.
 
Professor Jyoti Sinha CEng, FIMechE, programme director of the MSc Reliability Engineering & Asset Management, The University of Manchester, added: “REAM is an even more critical field of managerial and technical importance to international industry, putting maintenance managers in a position to make a major impact on the bottom line.”
 
“As the regional economy continues to grow, transform and diversify, we are now starting to see some major shifts taking place across industries in different stages of the lifecycle. Clearly, digital transformation is a part of this and the adoption of Industry 4.0 as part of the fourth industrial revolution is fusing the physical and digital worlds and creating new physical-cyber systems and ‘smart factories’. This is leading to a focus on optimising assets which means using risk and maintenance strategies for reliable and sustainable return on investment,” Sinha said.
 
In the Middle East, The University of Manchester’s MSc REAM is a part-time two-year programme delivered through a flexible blended learning approach to give managers the technical and managerial expertise to help their companies thrive in the fast-changing global marketplace.

The programme focuses on the practical application of theory to real-world industry needs, while students continue to work and apply their new knowledge in the workplace.

The course is fully accredited by The Institution of Mechanical Engineers. The first cohort in the Middle East begins in January 2018 and students will join regular face to face workshops with University faculty in Dubai, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
