What we believe


Students work with world-class sponsors in an innovative specialist curriculum and learning environment to develop outstanding knowledge and skills within the UTC’s areas of technical specialism, engineering for building and health sectors, and within a broad and rich general curriculum. Students experience new ways of learning focused on technical projects that allows all their learning to be contextualised and these are led by employers and sponsors.

Students combine ‘hand and mind’ to learn in applied and practical ways, integrating and contextualising academic and technical elements. Through the research and project-based curriculum they develop the skills that employers value.

Graduates of the UTC will be highly sought after by companies for employment or apprenticeships and will be well prepared for higher education and lifelong learning.







Our ethos is the promotion of every learner’s personal and future professional development. Every student who graduates from the UTC will be confident and well prepared to enter the world of work directly or via higher education or an apprenticeship. UTC students will stand out as being among the country’s best engineers with the knowledge and skills to enhance future industrial practice.
