Course summary

COURSE INFORMATION

Engineering is everywhere, helping transform people's lives around the globe. The work that engineers do is creative and hands-on. It's about designing things, finding solutions and improving things.

Engineering is one of the few career options that spans every sector, from sport to space. So whatever you care most about, there will be some engineering involved.

According to Engineering UK, 124,000 engineers and technicians with core engineering skills will be required each year in the UK alone.

Did you know that Engineering apprentices earn significantly more than the national apprentice minimum wage and the average Scottish engineer salary is 28% higher per year than the average Scottish salary.

So, there has never been a better time to start your career in Engineering!

This highly sought after advanced level course offers you the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge of commonly used and specialist welding processes and inspection techniques used within the oil, petro-chemical, nuclear, and general fabrication industries.
