The course emulated industry in operating for 47 weeks of a single year, with more than 1500 timetabled hours, using lectures combined with some eighty or so visits to sites, to examine industrial or business practice, including 8-10 exercises on the shop floor. The graduates travelled around in minibuses to visit various factories where they were involved in problem solving as well as being lectured to by industrial experts on their own home ground.
