The Zero-Defect Manufacture for a Circular Economy programme (ZD) is a Master of Science level programme within the EIT Manufacturing (EITM) Master School. The EITM Master School is a highly prestigious Manufacturing Engineering and Science education provider on advanced level with a focus on Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E). The education at EIT Manufacturing Master School combines technical competence with skills in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. EIT Manufacturing Master School students will be an elite group of forthcoming engineers, operators, innovators, and other relevant professionals.
Zero Defect Manufacture for a Circular Economy is a combination of studying manufacturing science including physics of equipment and processes, data analysis, including the methodology to use gained process data in the context of process quality, and process management including the flexibility enabled for smaller lot production. During the programme students will gain new skills in these areas.
- In manufacturing science, relevant fields include main thermal and mechanical processing technologies, with special reference to new processes with growing industrial importance and applied in different sectors, including automotive, aerospace, biomedical and energy.
- In data analysis, relevant fields include modelling, monitoring and improvement methods to design and manage data in industrial and service scenarios.
- In process management, relevant fields include analysis, design, and implementation of business and industrial processes as well as their business performance
Students will have a solid background with well-founded scientific knowledge with a significant technical and application content, favouring immediate entrance to job market. Typical functions of a ZD engineer includes quality management, design and management of manufacturing processes, industrial installations as well as production and logistics systems, maintenance management.
