Fully-funded future skills

Robotics and automation in the engineering industry are set to increase significantly over the next 10 to 15 years, meaning that there is an urgent need for skilled people who can service, repair and understand the principles of operation of autonomous machinery and robotic equipment. There are many diverse applications of robots and automation within industry, from autonomous vehicles and the use of drones for delivery to manufacturing and aeronautics. 

UCN is already one of the leading providers of HNC, HND and Engineering Degree programmes in the Thames Valley and we have partnered with The Henley College to support your business strategies for automation optimisation and help engineers and strategic thinkers develop their skills for the future. These innovative, practical and fully-funded courses teach delegates how to set up and program industrial robots on a range of operating systems, as well as how to maintain and look after industrial robot cells to help minimise wear and reduce downtime.
