Welcome to the Engineering department


What’s it all about?

Engineering is one of the most globally in-demand jobs and is one of the UK’s greatest success stories. By applying science and maths to solve real world problems, engineers are at the forefront of pioneering technology. Whether you choose mechanical, electrical, welding or aeronautical engineering, you will leave college with the most up-to-date skills for the demands of today’s manufacturing industries.

Is it for me?

Engineering is geared towards people who can use their initiative to come up with imaginative and pragmatic solutions to complex problems. if you enjoy problem-solving, are interested in the latest developments in technology, and have a passion for thinking outside of the box, a career in engineering could very well suit you. There are a variety of different paths that an engineering qualification can lead you towards.

What will I do?

As well as learning about the most recent developments in engineering from industry experts, you will have the opportunity to visit the home of innovative space engineering, the Johnston Space Centre (otherwise known as the Space University) at NASA in Houston, Texas.

Milton Keynes College is home to the impressive multi-million pound Innovation & Technology Centre, a space dedicated entirely to exactly that. Here you will learn to use the latest advanced technological machinery with other like-minded students.

We encourage our students to make the most of the excellent links we have with employers, guest lectures and work placement opportunities, which can offer industry experience that employers look for.

In addition to all of this, our students are offered the chance to win a prestigious award and bursary. The Adam’s Engineering Prize is supported by David and Jennifer Adams, the founders of Ace Cundell Engineers in Cosgrove. The £2,000 prize goes to students who are able to demonstrate originality, innovation and creative problem-solving in their engineering course. The award has been created to encourage and inspire young engineers in our community, and to recognise and celebrate the most talented engineering students in Milton Keynes.

What can I do next?

Take the skills you develop here with us to the next level, whether that be working towards a degree (Space University anyone?) or becoming an apprentice, there is a route to facilitate you discovering your potential and building a rewarding career in your specialist subject.

Have you thought about an apprenticeship?

Engineering apprenticeships are an ideal place to learn the hands-on side of the industry, all while earning a wage and getting qualified. Take a look at what like could be like as an engineering apprentice below:

Course Code: ENGTECH Start Date: 02/09/2019 Study Mode: Full-Time Fees: N/A Location: Innovation and Technology Centre
Highlights Include

Jobs in engineering are globally in demand. Engineers create, test and build, incorporating innovation, logic and purpose into their work. From the humble beginnings of the wheel and the lever, right up to aircrafts and dams, engineering has shaped the world we live in and continues to do so. Engineers have the opportunity to make a difference to the lives of people and society, bringing responsibility and reward to those who can innovate, create and succeed in the profession.

This course is available at Levels: 1, 2, 3

Course Code: WELDING Start Date: 02/09/2019 Study Mode: Full-Time Fees: N/A Location: Innovation and Technology Centre
Highlights Include

Welding & Fabrication is essential to many industries including aerospace, automotive, construction and transport. In any workplace that uses machines, metal products and structures, welders and fabricators are needed. It isn’t something you can learn by reading a book, you need to actually use the equipment and practice in real life situations.  Which is why from day one you will be working with industry-standard equipment such as MIG, TIG and arc welders, CAD software, and more. Attention to detail and precision are vital for any welder, along with the ability to work independently and follow exact instructions. Day-to-day tasks on the job could include anything from inspecting and testing cuts and joins, to operating welding equipment in intense working environments.

Please note: This programme forms the Vocationally Relevant Qualification for the Advanced Apprenticeship framework.

This course is available at levels: 2, 3
