PoM Learner Testimonials

"As an Industrial Civil Engineer whose first child was born during my studies, I appreciated the flexibility of the online Principles of Manufacturing MicroMasters® program. Although it may seem like a one-person endeavor, once you advance through the program, you recognize the classmates and TAs who are active in the forums and start to form a sort of ‘fellowship.’

I work in the cosmetics industry, and this program has shifted many of my opinions and decisions and has improved the results of my work.

Although the PoM program takes a 'macro' approach by exploring supply chains, production systems, inventory management, strategy and leadership, it doesn’t stop at theory; the program makes you understand the big picture of it all and the effects that certain factors have on an organization and/or industry."

--– Nicolas Spalloni, Industrial Civil Engineer

"I was able to obtain a great deal of depth in process control. This course really gives me the know-how and confidence to be able to tackle the very relevant issue of process control. Together with the next iteration of the course I hope to be able to use the skills in my current line of work which involves working closely with the manufacturing plant in designing and commissioning new manufacturing lines that are able to deliver the right product quality and volumes while minimizing the costs."

"I see the benefits this course offers to be used immediately at my workplace. I can use the teachings to provide input to management for scheduling and forecasting. I appreciate this course and look forward to part 2 for my next class in the Credentials program."

"Amazing materials and instructors. It is the best course until now that I took with MITx. The videos are supported by examples which give a better understanding of the content. Many thanks for this course."
