Engineering is the branch of science and technology concerned with the design, building and use of engines, machines and structures such as bridges or tunnels.
Whether you fancy working in production or maintenance, electrical or welding, the engineering industry is evolving - and fast. Sheffield’s rich industrial heart and fantastic engineering background makes it the perfect place to get stuck in with the engineering evolution. So if it’s Electrical and Electronic, Manufacturing, or straight up Engineering that you fancy, we’ve got the courses covered for you.
We offer a varied programme of engineering courses, from Electrical & Electronic Engineering at Level 1 upwards, to university level qualifications such as HNDs and apprenticeships. Whatever level you decide to study at, you'll be supported through your chosen course by tutors and lecturers who have a unique combination of industry and teaching experience, so they can help develop both your theoretical knowledge and practical skills to best prepare you for working in the Engineering field!
