Overview

Overview

Many large companies begin life as the brainchild of a single person with a great idea. An engineer or inventor will conceive a unique product and have the business skills to nurture the idea from concept to business. Recognising a niche in the market, they will use their design and engineering skills to realise a product. They will build the product, market and sell it, whilst creating a profit. This is a tried and tested route to success. This programme offers you the opportunity to learn all of these important skills.
