The engineering and electronics courses have a large industrial base and there are plenty of different types of businesses that require people with a variety of knowledge and skills.
These include welding, fabrication, machining, maintenance, manufacturing, engineering, electronics and control systems and design and computer-aided modelling.
Students taking engineering and electronics courses at Stoke on Trent College have access to well-equipped facilities that provide realistic industrial training, good assessment environments and activities. Engineering resources have recently been updated to the latest industry standards and include new equipment such as lathes, milling machines, pillar drills, CNC machine, welding and fabrication equipment, plasma cutter, hydraulic and pneumatic training equipment. Experienced tutors from industry provide you with the skills and support you need to succeed and this is combined with excellent links with employers in the field.
The college is due to open a brand new, bespoke Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Centre in 2015.
