Most of industry advancements rely on technologies. In fact, the healthcare industry needs a big workforce to develop technology. This generates tremendous potential for improvement and development in the healthcare industry.
Students can get a sense of achievement through solving problems in engineering. This is because the search for solutions, analysis of issues and decision-making are included in the study of engineering. The discipline is suitable for students with an analytical mind.
Today, there is a lack of middle level management personnel to manage technologies in the market. SEEM can help to train up students to take up the middle management level work by providing appropriate courses that fit the needs of society.
