"Made in China" is becoming more and more important for global acting companies. In 1990, China produced less than 3% of global manufacturing output by value; nowadays its share is nearly a quarter. The white heat of China‘s ascent formed supply chains which reach deep into South-East Asia.
Global players therefore continually extend their production sites in China. Parallely, the demand for engineers with highly developed technological know-how and the ability to meet the different on-site requirements is rapidly growing.
The HECTOR School, Technology Business School of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), provides the unique opportunity to equip the best engineers with state-of-the-art knowledge in supplier development & quality management in only one week. For good reason, the KIT is known worldwide for its German Engineering expertise.
The seminar week is composed of compact knowledge transfer in lectures, case studies, as well as excursions and company tours. The latter will provide participants with profound insights into the practical implementations in a Chinese production environment. The course does not only provide state-of-the-art knowledge transfer on-site, but also allows useful exchange with professionals and executives working in China.
