Follow our engineering pathway and you will get an excellent grounding in mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering to enable you to choose the career that’s right for you.
Using different machining processes, thanks to lathes, milling machines and various other specialist tools being in the workshop, you’ll gain practical experience of processes that you may do in the future.
As part of your studies, you will also have the opportunity to take part in employer-led, work-based projects, based on real-life scenarios, providing invaluable experience to supplement your studies. Level 3 students have recently benefitted from curriculum sponsorship from Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers (REME), including a work-based project, guest lecturing and regional competitions.
From aerospace to agriculture, food packaging to pharmaceuticals, and everything in between, organisations in those industries, from micro-SMEs to large, multi-national companies need the services of skilled engineers.
So much so, that as of 2021, there are 1.36 million job roles and 44,000 openings per year in the Engineering sector across the UK.
This sector is especially important in South East England, with 6% more job roles in the region compared to the UK average. Engineers are always in demand and are successfully employed or self-employed across the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors. In fact, as of 2021, 18% of the UK working population works in engineering, and at least 15% of the working population in every region are in engineering jobs.
