A chartered Engineer can earn over £60,000 in their first year of employment. Our courses are tailor-made to meet the needs of employers and help you progress to university. We work with local employers who provide you with industry standard projects alongside your studies. Our Engineering department promotes the highest standards of work, and is one of very few engineering training facilities approved by three professional 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.
