Studying Engineering at Silverstone UTC is an amazing opportunity to learn all about different engineering disciplines. In Key Stage 4 students will learn basic workshop skills and can study Engineering Design, Engineering Manufacture or Engineering Systems at Level 2. Student’s creativity can also be harnessed in BTEC Art & Design.
Students choosing Engineering in the 6th form will study towards a Level 3 qualification in Engineering. Depending on other subject choices, students will study a variety of engineering skills including workshop practices, engineering maths, electrical principles, computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacture, materials testing, quality control, pneumatics, welding and electronics. Some students will also need to complete an engineering project which will give them the opportunity to focus on an engineering area of their choice.
A much higher than average number of our students progress through apprenticeships to successful careers in different engineering sectors. Our students have gone on to careers with high profile organisations in Formula 1, automotive, national security, travel and construction industries.
All Engineering routes also give students the chance to progress to further education studying Engineering at University and a number of students choose this route each year.
