If you want to work in engineering, you’ll learn the skills you need for your future career in our modern engineering workshops at the Paget Road campus. 

The modern workshops on the Paget Road boast: 

  • Welding booths 
  • Maintenance equipment 
  • Programmable logic controllers 
  • Rapid prototyping machines 
  • Circuit assembly equipment 
  • Lathes, CNCs and milling machines 
  • Specialist computer-aided design suite with the latest CAD drafting facilities 
  • CAD/CAM PCs 

The engineering centre operates as a modern manufacturing plant and incorporates Lean Systems – including improvement processes, elimination of waste and developing smarter working practices – into all its courses, something that will look great on your CV and impress employers when you are applying for jobs in the future.  

What’s more, excellent links with local employers will ensure you develop the skills they are looking for in their workforce and have led to many students being offered an apprenticeship, which is a great way of combining working for an employer with studying for a qualification at college.
