International Innovation Masters

Project description

Led by the University of Wales Trinity St David, International Innovation Masters provides higher level qualifications to employees in Welsh industry, particularly within the advanced manufacturing sector. It supports employees to understand and engage with rapid technological change, helping to drive business growth. These programmes are designed to ensure Welsh Manufacturing companies stay ahead of the competition by identifying both existing and emerging manufacturing technologies and processes that can move your organisation forwards.

International Innovation Masters offers a further level of expertise than Upskilling for Industry 4.0: Wales. It will empower managers to exploit the new market opportunities offered by innovative technologies and to identify and realise their commercial potential.

Delivery model

Irrespective of their location in Wales, and to some extent their usual weekly schedule, the programmes have been designed to meet participant’s needs. Delivered in bite-size chunks, there is the flexibility to schedule the study around their other commitments.

Training will be based on the individual’s needs and interests, as well as those of their employers, including advanced level learning leading to a University awarded Masters qualification. Like Upskilling for Industry 4.0: Wales, learning will be delivered both face-to-face and remotely via the University’s Virtual Learning Environment.

Geographical coverage

The project operates across West Wales and the Valleys.

Essential eligibility criteria

Employees from any business large or small operating in any West Wales and the Valleys local authority area. Participants must have an existing level 6 qualification or graduate degree as a minimum entry requirement or equivalent.

 

Specific targets

To train 398 participants over a 5 year period and collaborating with 60 enterprises.
