Engineering

There are a huge range of career paths in engineering and manufacturing – and a breadth of opportunity. 

When studying engineering with us, you’ll learn engineering knowledge and develop engineering skills, using industry standard equipment, such as CNC machines, welding booths and electrical testing bays. We offer courses in a range of engineering disciplines, including advanced manufacturing, electrical engineering, fabrication and welding, so we can guarantee we have an engineering course that’s right for you.

You can be sure our experienced tutors and industry standard equipment will set you up for an engineering career! And you can also continue your learner journey with us through our range of higher education courses to further develop your engineering skills and knowledge.

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.

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