Welcome to the Bradford Engineering Quality Improvement Centre!
We are one of the leading UK University groups focusing on the advancement of Engineering Quality Improvement ( EQI ) practice to enhance the effectiveness of product and process creation .
The Engineering Quality Improvement initiative at Bradford University was established in 1994 as a partnership between the University and Ford Motor Company to develop an MSc programme in EQI. The aim of the Programme was to meet the industry business needs of enhancing the capability of engineers in applying engineering quality and reliability tools to the continuous improvement of product design and manufacture. Along with offering the MSc EQI programme to industry generally the Bradford EQI Centre (BEQIC) now offers a range of products and services including:
â€¢ Professional development though CPD short courses
â€¢ Postgraduate development opportunities through flexible work-based learning solutions
â€¢ Consultancy and in-house facilitation, and applied research.
The BEQIC is supported by academics with an interest in the application of engineering quality improvement disciplines to product development and manufacturing, as well as industry experts who contribute the wealth of their experience and expertise.
This gives a unique strength to the BEQIC approach: the synergy between academic rigour and practical industrial expertise results in an innovative yet focused and pragmatic problem solving approach, consistent and comprehensive in addressing business needs. On this basis we have developed a strong track record of success in working with industry, providing innovative solutions for postgraduate professional development, consultancy and applied research focused and tailored to the needs of our industrial partners.
