What We Add
You will benefit from being taught by industry professionals within our regional-leading training facilities and have access to our new state-of-the-art Energy Skills Centre building and resources. You will be able to build upon existing science and maths skills, enabling you to solve industry-specific problems and scenarios.
You will learn how to manage your time effectively and work as a team, improving your confidence and adaptability. As a class we will discuss and keep up-to-date with the latest technologies: Space X and renewable technologies for example.
You will also get to showcase your own ideas and concepts, improving and developing your own communications skills. There will also be opportunities to look at some of these industries outside the classroom, with different trips and employer engagement.
How Can I Standout With Science and Engineering?
Science and Engineering students are very valuable in industry and this course will equip you to progress into various streams of engineering: renewables, the energy industry (offshore and onshore), operations and maintenance, technical design, chemical process engineering, HNC, HND and various engineering degree programmes BEng (Hons).
In addition, this course provides excellent apprenticeship opportunities within these sectors. Many of these career opportunities can take you all over the globe and enable you to make a real difference to our modern lives.
- You will need an average GCSE score of at least 5.5
- As a minimum, we would require you to study at least A Level Maths alongside the Engineering course, but preferably A Level Maths as well as A Level Physics or Chemistry
