Since our CEMAST campus opened in 2014, there has been over £12 million of investment in our engineering facilities. This includes the installation of industry-standard machinery including 3D printers, robotics, specialist welding and fabrication areas, CADCAM technologies, pneumatics and hydraulics equipment and a materials testing laboratory.
CEMAST is highly recognised for its exceptional standard of work. Major global engineering companies send staff from all over the world to train at the facility, which is approved by professional bodies including the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Institute of Measurement and Control, and the Institution of Engineering and Technology.
HNC and HND qualifications are workplace-specific, and designed to prepare you for a range of technical, professional and management careers in engineering.
If you have completed a Level 3 qualification in Engineering and want to carry on with training to advance your skills even further, these courses are an ideal route into university or higher level employment.
They are also a great option if you are already in employment and looking to gain an advanced qualification in your field.
We are one of the only colleges in the areas to offer many of these specialised higher level courses.
Higher apprentices will usually study a Higher National Certificate (HNC) at College full time for a year before they enter the workplace. Our Higher National Diploma (HND) qualifications are delivered over a two-year period on a part time/day-release basis, giving students the opportunity to study around their normal working hours.
