MSc Industrial Innovation Entrepreneurship & Management


The Master of Science in Industrial Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Management (MSc IIEM) was developed through a partnership established with the Institute for Manufacturing at the University of Cambridge. It comprises two streams; a business stream and a design stream. The implementation of the MSc IIEM by UTT was introduced to provide industry with highly motivated and effective industry leaders, managers and design engineers, all with an entrepreneurial mindset, equipped with the skills and tools necessary to overcome modern manufacturing challenges and contribute to wealth creation in Trinidad & Tobago. The MSc IIEM provides a comprehensive understanding of manufacturing processes, manufacturing technologies and manufacturing organizational principles to help graduates gain practical experience to navigate industrial or entrepreneurial career paths. This is achieved by offering the programme in a series of interconnected modules.

Modules comprise a two week teaching period followed by a project in which students are located in an industry/manufacturing plant to solve a real problem. The supervision of these projects is conducted by both industry and academic personnel. In this way, students have the benefit of rigorous academic training, practical industrial skills and personal competencies. This unique feature of the programme results in industry ready graduates.

Students are required to submit a business plan for which they are mentored by entrepreneurial captains of industry and further embark upon an international study tour in order to be exposed to the best practices in the global environment. Furthermore, students are required to complete the requirements of a research based thesis or a design project.

The Design, Prototyping and Production facilities which were recently commissioned are world class state of the art facilities which allows for the design and prototyping of new products and the enhancing of existing products. While all students are exposed to these facilities, students in the design stream acquire in depth expertise. These graduates are expected to be in the vanguard of the movement for developing the SME sector.
There is a wide range of job opportunities, in a number of different settings and manufacturing companies throughout the country for graduates. Graduates from the last two (2) years of the programme are currently holding positions in sectors that include Financial, Education, Downstream Steel, Construction, Energy, Manufacturing and Public Services. A few have started their own businesses.

Areas covered in programme include:

  • Supply Chain and Logistics Management
  • Marketing and Strategy
  • HR and Leadership
  • Process improvement
  • Technology innovation and Management
  • Project management
  • Finance
  • Design and Rapid Prototyping
  • Entrepreneurial Activities

The IIEM programme is the ideal vehicle to position graduates with a distinctive advantage in today's competitive market.
