We have four engineering pathways for you to choose from. If you’re not sure which is right for you, our video will help.
We have a brand new £3.5m Automotive Technologies Centre, giving our students access to cutting-edge motor vehicle training facilities.
Over 200 apprentices study with the Engineering Department from a range of businesses.
Skilled workers are in short supply in every single type of Engineering from Mechanical to Civil, so there’s sure to be plenty of career opportunities in the industry when y0u finish your qualification.
Our Automotive Technologies students work on real cars in the vehicle garage providing you with hands-on practical experience to enhance your learning.
The majority of our Engineering courses, apart from Automotive Technologies, are delivered in the College’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) Centre which has excellent custom built engineering and electrical workshops. Visit the STEM Centre campus page to find out more about the state-of-the-art facilities and take a 360 tour.

See what careers are available in the Engineering sector.
Level 3 Engineering Technician
“The things I learnt at College come in handy at work, for example, learning electrical principles helped me understand electronics better. I don’t think I would have the same skills and knowledge I have today if not for the Masonite Academy.”

Engineering Electrical/Mechanical (Mechatronics) Level 3 Full-time
“My favourite thing about my course is definitely welding. I don’t like sitting behind a computer, I like being hands-on. Once I complete my course, I’m hoping to go to university and study a degree apprenticeship.”
Level 3 Maintenance and Operations Engineering Technician
“The Masonite Academy allowed me to get the job I’m in today as it taught me the skills and gave me the opportunity for an interview. On the course, I learnt the skills which I could improve on with more time and practice in the workplace. Without the Academy, it would have been a lot harder to find a job I wanted.”
