This is a broad based engineering course that covers all areas of engineering. The course contains units on Electrical Engineering, Motor Vehicle, Fabrication and Welding & Mechanical Engineering as well as a project on Renewable Engineering. This will give the learner the opportunity to access a wide variety of subjects and complete practical tasks in all areas. It will enable the learner to fully embrace engineering skills that are found in modern industry and feel confident in helping with career path development.
This programme will develop your skills confidence and awareness of engineering practices and skills. It will also aim to develop your study skills as a learner.
This is a broad based engineering course that will give the learner the opportunity to access a wide variety of courses. It will enable the learner to fully embrace engineering skills that are currently found in the industry.
No formal qualifications are required, however, evidence that you can work at National 3/4 level is desirable. An evident interest in developing practical skills in the field of engineering will be explored during your advice session.
If you are currently studying at the College, you will also require a positive Progressing Learner Reference.
You will be provided with and are responsible for wearing all provided Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) safety footwear is compulsory within our workshops.
Information and Interview Session Requirements
This is a key aspect of the application process. You must confirm your attendance should you be offered an appointment.

The course has been designed to give the student hands-on experience of the main areas of engineering such as Motor Vehicle, Electrical, Fabrication and Welding, Mechanical Engineering and will also have Renewables content leading to a Renewable Energy project.
All subjects are concerned with learning the skills within each area and transferring knowledge and understanding between the engineering disciplines being taught.
A project involving all areas except motor vehicle will be utilised to give a practical example of the knowledge transfer where motor vehicle will have a stand alone project.
