Students will be given free access to an industry-recognised management training programme under a University of the West of Scotland (UWS) initiative.

New-starts on UWS’s Engineering courses will this year be offered the chance to undertake the Yellow Belt, Certified Lean Six Sigma course for free.

Lean Six Sigma is a powerful management tool that provides organisations with a systemic approach to enhance their profitability, productivity, overall business performance and customer satisfaction.

The highly-regarded management training programme will be offered to students on the Aircraft Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer-Aided Design and Engineering Management courses as part of their induction.

The course, which usually costs £480, is delivered annually by the University as a CPD (continuing professional development) opportunity, but this year has been built into the undergraduate courses to give students greater breadth of experience.

“Ensuring our students have the skills and knowledge to thrive in the world of work is key at UWS, which is why this year we’ve decided to give our new students the chance to undertake the Lean Six Sigma programme."
Dr Michele Cano, Head of the Division of Engineering at UWS

“Employers are increasingly looking for more from graduates, and the Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt course will give our students the chance to develop a range of management skills that are very much in demand in the engineering industry and beyond.”
