BCoT Logo



A chartered engineer can earn over £60,000 in their first year of employment and our courses will help you progress to university to become chartered. Our courses are tailor-made to meet the needs of local employers, who also provide you with industry-standard projects to undertake alongside your classroom studies. Our Engineering department promotes the highest standards of work, and is one of very few engineering training facilities approved by three professional engineering institutions: Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Institute of Measurement and Control, and the Institution of Engineering and Technology.

We are proud partners of Middlesex Aerospace, a market-leading aerospace manufacturing and engineering company who sponsor our full-time Level 2 Engineering course.
