Quality Engineering / Technician
Quality Engineering is another area that has been identified as having a
gap in the market. Many individuals are currently working in Quality
Engineering positions without formal qualification. There is a huge
desire from these individuals and their employers to resolve this issue.
The demand is from a large range of company types within the
engineering sector and the aim is to create a regionally based, part-time
Level 8 qualification in this discipline.
Member companies engaged in this project are:
- Boston Scientific
- Carten Controls
