Industry leading courses

Engineering is driving the fourth industrial revolution, as the influence of digital technologies and networking, machine learning and robotics change design, manufacturing, and production. Skilled and imaginative engineers are once again the in-demand resource, worldwide.

You can begin your career with mechanical or electronic engineering either through our Higher National Certificate (HNC) programme, an apprenticeship, foundation degree or BSc. Specific courses offer specialisation in production and manufacturing, communications, and integrated technologies.

All our engineering courses offer opportunities for progression to further study, in some cases at University Centre ǿմý, or at other universities. Our connections to employers within the region could also offer possibilities for internships, work experience, or employment.

The main highlight for me was networking and engaging with students at different companies.
