We are recruiting well-qualified, motivated and expert staff to light the sparks in the imaginations of the students.
The location of the UTC enables unparalleled access for students to the on-site work of our high profile industry partners: Network Rail, Landsec, BT Fleet, Alstom, Sir Robert McAlpine, Colas Rail and Transport for London. Students work with the professional engineers and project managers in these companies, solving real life business challenges where they will have to both collaborate with others and work independently. One project, for example, is to design and test double decker trains to assess their feasibility on our crowded railways. While working on these projects, students learn how to apply the English, maths, science and engineering they are studying for their GCSE or A level standard exams. Our students benefit from mentoring by students from The University of Westminster.
With the generous support of The Sir Simon Milton Foundation and The University of Westminster, the education at the UTC is world class. Students, armed with technical skills, far in advance of their peers, are ready to stride confidently forward into employment, apprenticeships or further or higher education.
*The Oxford English Dictionary defines an engineer as someone who can ‘skilfully arrange for something to happen’. No mention of the cliché of oily rags! Professional engineers in the 21st Century are usually seen in smart business wear. Their skills are in short supply and high demand.
