Why Engineering/Motor Vehicle courses?
Skilled engineers are very much in demand globally and there is a wealth of opportunity available for those who gain competence in the various areas of Engineering.
Engineers use their knowledge in a specific field to test and design things, improve things and solve problems. There is currently a shortage of recruits with qualifications in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects so prospects for anyone with these skills are positive.
In addition to the traditional fields of engineering such as mechanical, industrial, electronic or metallurgical engineering, new emerging fields include alternative fuels, Biosystems, robots, lasers, turbines and satellites.
Careers in this area combine specialist and practical skills and professional engineers can command high salaries and expect excellent career progression opportunities.
Learning doesn’t just stop in the workshops for our Motor vehicle courses, as students on our study programmes go on trips to leading car manufacturers such as Jaguar and Land Rover - so you’ll get first-hand experience of what it is like working for some of the world’s most famous companies.
Engineering and Motor Vehicle facilities
Our Engineering courses are offered in modern workshops in our eco-friendly Trinity Green campus using new equipment and the latest technology. You will benefit from the support of experienced and professional tutors whose dedication to Engineering has won the College recognition and numerous awards.
Throughout your course, you will be encouraged to take part in regional competitions and various events and projects in which our former students have achieved success.
Our motor vehicle courses are held at Bowling Back Lane, which houses huge workshops which can hold up to 12 cars including HGVs; an engine room; fitting area; the kit car workshop; classrooms; a canteen; and social areas. All equipment used within the facility is exactly the same as that in working environments, to prepare you for seamless progression into employment.
All of the students on our Diploma in Engineering course agreed that teaching on their course was good.
