Student testimonials
"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. I am certain that part of my success is thanks to the amazing people that I met, for which I am very grateful."
