From understanding statutory regulations and organisational safety requirements to using the latest industry equipment and technologies, our engineering programmes really prepare students for industry or further study.

Many of our former students have progressed into higher education and apprenticeships or have gained employment with local or national companies in the engineering or manufacturing sectors.
