Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the HETAC or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
Production management involves co-ordinating and controlling all the activities required to make a product.
This course has a mixture of engineering and business subjects, which develop a strong understanding of both the technical and the managerial aspects of production and the necessary support operations such as supply-chain management, quality systems, accounting and human resources. Production Management (LM063) has been re-launched as Technology Management and has changed substantially and therefore the points for Production Management in 2011 may not be an accurate guide to the points for Technology Management in 2012.
