All UTC South Durham students study two engineering qualifications (equivalent to two GCSEs) through the OCR Cambridge Nationals course. All students study Engineering Manufacturing, and have a choice between studying Design Engineering or Systems and Control.

Here at UTC South Durham our engineering hall is the heart of our building. We have teaching staff and industry professionals leading lessons for our Key Stage 4 teaching programme. Students will learn core skills covering health and safety, interpreting engineering information, and practical engineering operations.

Our specialism of engineering and advanced manufacturing are reflected in the wide range of careers available across the region. These courses have been chosen by our employer partners to reflect the needs of their future workforce. The formal courses will be delivered through practical application; building students’ skills from using entry level equipment to industry standard machinery.
