Specialism: Engineering | Science

Location: Birmingham

Date of opening: September 2012

Aston University Engineering Academy UTC was established by Aston University in 2012.

It offers 14-19 year olds in the region the opportunity to specialise in and study for technical qualifications in engineering and science as part of their GCSE and A Level curriculum.

This means that students can choose to study Extended BTEC Diplomas, and business and industry standard qualifications in these specialisms, alongside the traditional academic subjects such as English, maths and science.

The UTC is located at Birmingham Science Park, next to the University. It works closely with the University's School of Engineering and Applied Science and many local employers, as well as leading engineering companies. They provide sponsorship, advice on the curriculum and give students access to mentoring, masterclasses, state of the art learning facilities and work-based experiences. These enhance the secondary education provided by the UTC and prepare students for life after school.

Aston University Engineering Academy supports all routes into the workplace, including Higher and advanced apprenticeships, further study at university, or straight into a job.
