These vocational courses are taught by highly qualified and experienced lecturers and combine the academic study of core engineering principles with practical, hands-on learning.
These courses have been designed for students who are looking for a university-level and professional-standard technical education in engineering, with the option to specialise in either building services engineering, civil engineering, construction or surveying.
Regardless of the pathway, though, you will benefit from the UCW approach of combining academic study in areas including materials, mathematics and project management with practical learning.
