Engineering & Motor Vehicle Studies
Wirral Met College’s brand new Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) Centre opened at our Twelve Quays Campus in Birkenhead in June 2016. The new STEM Centre brings together a number of key technology disciplines embracing specialist, industry-standard equipment including Programmable Logic Control (PLC) and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) systems to support Engineering Manufacturing, enabling students to develop their skills for a wide range of careers.
With an engineering qualification, you could progress to careers as diverse as developing manufacturing equipment, security systems or making prosthetic limbs. Career routes include becoming an engineering maintenance technician or a welder, and you could work across a range of sectors including engineering, transport, aerospace and offshore oil and gas. There are also many opportunities for those interested in a career in motor vehicle engineering. Many of our students progress onto successful careers in top dealerships, franchises, service centres and general garages, working in roles such as Service Technician, Diagnostic Technician, Mechanic, MOT Specialist, Service Manager.
