Over the past two months Seabrook have been working with University College Cork (UCC) students who are currently studying a MSc ISBP (Information Systems for Business Performance). The group are carrying out a research project exploring ‘the challenges and opportunities of manufacturing execution systems (MES) in the life science manufacturing industry with an aim to recommend the characteristics of an ideal system‘.

The MSc in ISBP is a 12-month intensive course with industrially mentored collaborative projects. Students are taught from beginner level, and prepared to take up business analyst/programmer and management positions in IT departments in small, medium or large organisations, whether public or private, in the financial services, manufacturing or any sector.

We look forward to seeing the finished report and, as always, we are proud to build on our strong relationship with University College Cork.
