Engineering & Science

Take a look at our courses if you are interested in Science, Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Machining or Welding


There is a national shortage of engineers, so engineering really is a smart career to get in to. We’ve got plenty of options so you can pursue either a practical, workshop-based career, or if you a problem solver then will teach you to design and build solutions on a computer.

We have recently invested over £1 million in our facilities to provide our students with access to the best facilities and equipment so they are skill ready when they leave the door.




If you join one of our Engineering & Science courses, you’ll be taught by experienced lecturers who have worked in the industry. We offer a wide range of courses to suit all abilities.

“When I was little I was always hanging around with my Dad while he was building and fixing things. I believe that is where my choice to study Engineering came from. In my first year at college we covered a broad range of topics including mechanical engineering, fitting and welding. I have chosen to specialise in Welding as I love the hands-on approach it give me. I like to get stuck in and get my hands dirty, sitting behind a desk all day is definitely not for me. ”
