"I was amazed by how well the Lean Six Sigma for Operational Excellence programme was designed and the knowledge and experience all lecturers had to share with us - students. I really enjoyed the fact that Heriot-Watt is a very international university. Thanks to many group projects, I was able to meet unique people from around the world, learn from their experiences and make new friendships.
