Engineering & Manufacturing Higher Education
Engineering is driving the fourth industrial revolution.
Industry leading courses
Engineering is driving the fourth industrial revolution, as the influence of digital technologies and networking, machine learning and robotics change design, manufacturing, and production. Skilled and imaginative engineers are once again the in-demand resource, worldwide.
You can begin your career at Petroc with mechanical or electronic engineering either through the HNC programme, an apprenticeship, foundation degree or BSc. Specific courses offer specialisation in production and manufacturing, food manufacturing, communications, and integrated technologies.
All our engineering courses offer opportunities for progression to further study, in some cases at Petroc, or at other universities. Our connections to employers within the region could also offer possibilities for internships, work experience, or employment.
The variety of modules I studied gave me the opportunity to learn so much that it essentially made me a better engineer.
