Specialism: Engineering

Location: Swindon

Date of opening: September 2014

An engineering academy at the heart of a large engineering, manufacturing and business community, sponsored both by a major international industrial partner which pioneers cutting edge sustainable technologies and by a university with a prestigious school of engineering. The curriculum will be fully employer designed, integrating and transferring skills for work-readiness.

The vision is for an outstanding technical education alongside academic achievement, and for high rates of progression from STEM subjects to degree level and employment.

At Johnson Matthey Fuel Cells we are excited and confident that the Swindon UTC will provide high quality engineers for the future locally, regionally and nationally. This vocational rebalance of education will prepare students for industry and allow young engineers to be immediately attractive to employers.

Dr Jack Frost
Director, Johnson Matthey Fuel Cells

Oxford Brookes University sees the UTC as a unique opportunity for partnership between business and education. Engineering talent in the UK is amongst the best in the world, but we need to see many more young people making an active career choice in this field.

Paul Inman
Pro Vice-Chancellor, Oxford Brookes University

As the main provider of vocational and technical education and training in Swindon, Swindon College sees significant benefits from a local UTC, in terms of skills and workforce qualifications for the engineering and manufacturing employers in the area.
