Engineering College Courses
Bishop Burton is a great place to learn the principles and practical skills to work in engineering.
If you want an engineering career, our general and more specialist land-based engineering courses are a great starting point.
Bishop Burton has a dedicated engineering workshop, which replicates industry workshops, so you’ll be well-prepared for work at the end of your course.
You’ll have access to a full range of tools, training equipment (including welding simulators) and machinery, with our expert tutors on hand to help you develop the skills you need.
Depending on the type of course you choose - Level 2, Level 3, an apprenticeship or short course - you can learn the principles of mechanical engineering and acquire practical skills too, such as fabrication and welding.

"I gave up my previous career to pursue my dream of working in Engineering. I don’t have any regrets. I’ve loved every minute of the Engineering course and I’m so pleased I went down the BTEC route."

Lecturer in Welding and Fabrication
"Before joining Bishop Burton, I was in the Army, working in welding and fabrication with the Royal Engineers, for six-and-a-half years. I also worked in a welding and fabrication factory.
"Everything we do in the engineering department has a real world, practical element to it. As a specialist college, Bishop Burton has its own working farm, so we get real jobs to do from that, working on the machinery. We also get local farms bringing their equipment in as well. The students are all working on real tasks, which provides them with invaluable experience.
"It’s really important to prepare students for industry, so as well as working on practical tasks, we also give them responsibility and treat them like adults."
