Specialised Industry

Plastic Roll in Factory


The Specialised Industry Pathway is for those who want to understand fundamental tools and develop digital skills to help rapidly accelerate their capabilities and allow them to better manage the digital transformation initiatives within their workplace.

Through this pathway, you will gain insight into the application of AI in civil, mechanical and electrical engineering, understand the real-time monitoring and decision-making capabilities of digital twins and be able to assess risks and opportunities to improve operational efficiency and develop a digital transformation roadmap.



Learning is tailored to you - our flexible pathways give you the opportunity to choose the modules which best suit your career goals.

Our Learning Engagement Lead will be with you every step of the way, offering advice and supporting you with the development of a bespoke action plan to set you on the path to career success.
