Engineering remains one of the UK’s most important industries, offering a diverse range of exciting employment opportunities, from design to tool making. During your studies you will learn the principles of engineering so you can then specialise in areas such as manufacturing, plant operations and repair, machining, welding and fabrication.
We offer two options for you to start your engineering studies depending on your GCSE results. Our Level 3 course offers you the choice of university study or employment on successful completion of your course. Our Level 2 course is ideal if you would like more time to develop your skills before progressing on to further study.
The programme is a practical course which will see you develop both hands-on skills and academic knowledge of engineering.
As part of your course you will be required to carry out Work Experience and/or an Industry Placement. For more details please click here.
