Engineering your future
Engineering is all around us and is essentially the art of designing products to solve real-world problems. Engineers use science-based models to complete tasks and projects that benefit the community. This could include designing the latest automation and robotics, investigating renewable energy resources, contributing to sustainability and developing new prosthetic aids for the medical sector. Our courses enable you to develop your engineering knowledge, skills, creativity and engineering experience to the highest levels in readiness for your future career or next level of study. Being an engineer means a cycle of continuous learning adapting to changes in society and the world around us.

I was a Test Engineer for Celestica, working with a number of companies including Hewett Packard, Dell, Sun Microsystems, BAE and ITT corporation. I worked with technicians to repair test machines and debug failing circuit boards. This experience helps me to explain how international companies work and how electronics are manufactured and tested, which I can share with students.Andrew Jordan Curriculum Team Leader in Engineering
