Example programme structure

The programme is modular. Students take eight units, some of which include field and laboratory work, followed by a major dissertation project. The earlier units address the management of the maintenance process, including such topics as maintenance strategy, maintenance systems and condition based monitoring. Later more specialised units deal with auditing, advanced vibration monitoring, reliability and risk. Units on the full time programme are direct taught.
