School of Engineering

The School of Engineering offers both full-time and part-time programmes of study designed to meet the needs of employers within Wales and further afield.

All qualification programmes offered are nationally recognised and will enhance students prospects of obtaining employment within their chosen Engineering discipline.

Engineering resources include a newly built facility housing three main Machining workshops containing numerous lathes, millers, surface grinders and modern CNC machines.

In addition, we have acquired two high speed cobra automatic computer controlled machining centres.

Attached to the main workshops are specialist facilities containing computer systems for training in CNC programming, Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and a touch probe 3D measurement system.

The building also houses a fully equipped Fabrication and Welding workshop covering all aspects of welding applications, a Hydraulics workshop, a Pneumatics /Electro-Pneumatics and Maintenance workshop together with a specialist Design Technology laboratory.

Located on the same campus are the Electrical/Electronic Engineering Laboratories, classrooms and computer rooms containing resources to support education from Entry Level to Foundation Degree standards.

The School of Engineering offers programmes of study commencing at Entry Level through to Foundation Degree. There are formal entry requirements for every level. Applicants will need to demonstrate a commitment to study and will be interviewed for auditability by the Course Coordinator.

We also offer a full range of programmes at Level 2 and Level 3 (including GCE A Level Design Technology, GCE A Level Engineering and GCE A Level Electronics).

Engineering is also very active in the delivery of Modern Apprenticeship Training.

We also have available Higher Education programmes via arrangements with the University of Wales and the University of Glamorgan (HNC, HND and Foundation Degree).

The School prides itself on having a very good student achievement rate.
