The part-time program has 2 levels: The Basic Level aims to help fill the continual need for qualified personnel to perform basic functions in the fields of work measurement, methods analysis, plant layout, material handling, quality control, cost estimating and tooling applications. Courses provide many of the tools and techniques which have proven effective in the analysis, improvement and control of work. The student also receives grounding in the knowledge of manufacturing processes and industrial organization. Upon completion of the Basic Certificate, the graduate will have the knowledge and skills required for junior positions such as Time Studies Analyst or Methods Analyst. The Advanced Level is designed for graduates of the Basic Level or equivalent who may be employed in an industrial engineering function. Courses provide a knowledge of manufacturing management techniques, such as production planning and scheduling, an understanding of labour relations, applications of tooling, skills in the application of drafting, process planning, work measurement and standard data development. Upon completion of the Advanced Certificate, the graduate will have the knowledge and skills required for junior positions such as Time Study Analyst, Methods Analyst, Cost Estimator and Process Planners.
