If you enjoy maths, science, design or technology and would like a role where you can help shape and develop the future, then a career within engineering could be for you. We have an extensive range of engineering courses, including full-time, part-time and higher education study options. Our courses include traditional engineering disciplines as well as more specialist programmes and are taught in our state-of-the-art STEAM Academy in Pencoed.
Introduction on CNC Machinery, Health and safety within a workshop environment, Basic CNC Programming, Coordinate setting and work offset tables, CNC milling machines, CNC Lathe
This course utilises the S7-1215 PLC. It covers configuration, wiring, programming and fault finding. We aim to make this course as practical as possible utilising our training rig using TIA portal V17.
This course is designed to build upon your knowledge of basic pneumatics, this course aims to give you a familiarisation with the design, construction and operation of electro-pneumatic circuits.
This course is designed to be a general introduction, this course aims to give you a familiarisation with the design, construction and operation of pneumatic circuits.
The Solar Photovoltaic Systems NOS Mapped course will provide electricians with the skills and knowledge required to install small scale photovoltaic (PV) systems to single phase supplies. The course has been structured to meet the requirements of the National Occupational Standards and is recognised as a demonstration of competence for the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).
This qualification is primarily developed for those individuals who wish to enhance their career by qualifying as an MOT Tester. Achievement of this qualification enables you to apply to undertake the DVSA final observed assessment in order to achieve your Certificate of Competence (CoC), enabling you to become a Nominated Tester. The content of this qualification has been designed to reflect the contents of the National Occupational Standards for MOT Testers.
This course is for those who wish to further their experience and skills in the use of CAD software. You will learn the more advanced aspects of AutoCAD, including the use of the application and role that CAD drawing and design plays in industry.
Level 2 is ideal if you have some experience in computing, perhaps in manufacturing or engineering design, which will help you progress in your career.
The Computer Aided Design (CAD) Parametric Modelling Level 2 Award will enable you to develop your knowledge and skills to create sketches, work features, table driven parts and assemblies, understand constraints and be able to create a drawing layout. The software used will be Autodesk Inventor.
The 18th Edition Wiring Regulations course ensures that you are up-to-date with the latest industry regulations on wiring and the safe use and operation of electrical equipment and systems.
This course will help you to develop an understanding of entrepreneurship processes within the manufacturing and engineering industry. You will be able to improve your commercial skills for developing new products and identifying a route to market. You will apply your knowledge and skills to a live case study, undertaking the process from ideation to pitching for investment.
The Level 4 Intrapreneurship Skills Bootcamp is designed to create an environment where engineers can apply intrapreneurial techniques and develop transferable skills. Delivered via a live industry project-based model, this course provides a unique opportunity for participants to apply new product development principles, articulate a route to market, and develop commercial acumen. Working in teams, the participants will ideate solutions, develop a basic proof of concept, and design the business model to bring the new product or service to market, internally or externally as required.
