Green Manufacturing Short Course

The Green Manufacturing Executive Short Course considers the pertinent issues surrounding the green economy debate and why they are critical to the manufacturing sector. Manufacturing is a key contributor to the world’s environmental problems. The technologies it has deployed, the materials it uses, and the complex inbound and outbound value chains it has created all have significant global environmental impacts. The course focuses on the different green discourses potentially shaping the future development trajectory of manufacturing, while also providing an analysis of the key interventions and strategies that are relevant to green manufacturing.

Manufacturing is our passion:
Is it yours?

TWIMS provides structured programmes with the aim of developing Africa’s manufacturing leaders. 

We provide formal academic courses through our partnership with GIBS, as well as a range of non-academic short courses.

“The creation of a deep manufacturing culture (“monozukuri” – meaning making things in Japanese) has contributed to the development of Asian economies such as Japan, Thailand and Korea. I believe we need to start building a similarly deep culture of manufacturing in Africa. The development of this culture can transform African society. Africa needs highly skilled engineers and production managers that can lead and manage complex manufacturing businesses.”

– Johan van zyl
