Engineering is all around us. It plays an important part in what we do and has an impact on everyone’s life. In the UK, it employs over five million people and contributes over one trillion pounds in turnover to the economy.*

World class engineering requires world class skills. The success of engineering in the UK is due to several reasons, not least being the development of great engineering innovation and technology: we have evolved from a mass production nation into a lean-managed, agile, high-value manufacturing/engineering economy.

The UK is acknowledged as a world leader in several engineering sectors: universities, automotive, renewable energy, space, low carbon, aerospace, creative industries, agri-food and bioscience.

By 2020, engineering companies are predicted to need almost two million new employees with engineering skills*, creating exciting opportunities for students who want to work in the industry.

“My company were looking at a course to aid with my next stage in educational development, Newbury college stood out to me from the course selection they gave me as it is a well rated college and the course itself is better suited to my way of learning by being coursework based. The lecturers are always very helpful and their feedback on any assignments are really helpful in where to make improvements now and how to continue that level of detail on other assignments. The course itself it presented in a good way, it is a mixture of classroom teaching and hands on practical.”

“I have studied at Newbury College for nearly two years now and I feel the college is working hard to ensure I obtain the qualifications I need and want. The course covers a wide range of engineering sectors, allowing me to explore different forms of engineering. The teaching staff all have different backgrounds, making the lessons far more interesting and diverse. I would like to progress onto level 4 at the new University Centre.”
