Why study engineering?

Our engineering course is designed to support and engage students who want to learn about engineering from the design and planning perspective. It provides a broad introduction to the engineering sector and the types of career opportunities available together with being a foundation for further study.

This further study could provide students with the awareness of different types of job roles in the sector. As a result, they may wish to start an apprenticeship or continue with their studies into further and higher education in order to pursue those job roles.
