Engineering is an exciting subject that opens up a world of opportunities for you to design, develop and build almost anything and everything in the world around us. Whether it be the ways we commute to work, the homes we live in or even the ways we stay entertained, engineering, technology and manufacturing are involved.

Our award-winning Engineering department provides the best place for engineering students to learn both the theory of engineering as well as training in a practical environment.

We have an excellent reputation, which is recognised by a number of leading employers across the North East who operate on a global scale and recommend the training delivered at TyneMet College.

The Engineering department at TyneMet boasts a huge range of resources such as lathes, milling and turning machines, CNC areas, welding booths, electrical engineering practical and testing areas; all of which match that which you would find in the sector. Access to this industry standard equipment coupled with spacious workshops, classroom spaces and computers to assist with class work and engineering design skills including CAD/CAM work, mean that studying engineering at TyneMet sets individuals up extremely well for the world of work.

Our curriculum is set with employers’ needs in mind and is often created hand-in-hand with employers to ensure the content we are delivering meets the up-to-date needs of industry.

TyneMet College was the first college in the North of England to gain STEM Assured accreditation, recognising excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. This highlights the College’s commitment to driving forward new methods and sharing knowledge with young people and adults across the region who want to improve their career prospects for the engineering industry.

Our students leave us with a multitude of industry-ready skills to ensure that they are trained to suit the needs of today’s employers and keen to further their skills and development in the workplace to build a successful career.

As part of our growing Engineering capacity, we opened a new Centre for Engineering and Innovation, IGNITE.
