Hello,

This is my first post to the IET forums, so I hope I've posted this to the correct one!

I am thinking of studying for a Diploma in Systems Practice and wondered if people thought this would be useful in an Engineering/Technology environment? I realise that Engineering/Technology is a very broad area, so I'd just like general advice please.

Here's the link for anyone interested: http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/u...qualification/d42.htm

Thanks for your time,

Tim

Tim,

According to the course details, you need to finish the T214 course first before attempt the T306.

There are also student reviews on the T214 and T306 courses which will offer you a better guide than anyone can offer on this forum.

Thanks for your time, but unfortunately not very helpful advice.

Maybe I haven't been clear enough:
I'm looking for an engineering perspective on Systems Practice rather than advice on the course itself. The course is just a vehicle to learning about Systems Practice. I would like to know if Systems Practice would be beneficial in an Engineering / Technology environment.

Thanks again for your time. Hopefully someone that uses the ideas/methods in the OU courses for their job could help me out?

At the tender age of my early forties I have decided to study an MSc in Systems Engineering part-time ... having gone down a narrow telecoms route in my previous study.

From what I've learnt so far I'd say go for it..
