Engineering degree launched
A new engineering degree is being launched at Evesham College and will be the only course of its type in Worcestershire. The BEng (Hons) Engineering degree will start in September 2020 and provides the only Level 6 study option in the region. It is hoped the course will benefit employers regionally who are looking to upskill workforces or employees who would like to top-up to level six honours. The part-time course, which is accredited by the University of Gloucestershire, will act as a top-up degree from level five and can be completed within a year. Students can also complete their Level 4 and 5 at the college, but existing employees with HND or foundation degrees will now have a local option to achieve their full qualification. It will be one-day a week programme for 34 weeks and is being delivered by experts who have also worked in industry.
Learning will take place in the state-of-the-art engineering centre at Evesham College, which includes equipment funded by the Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (WLEP). Evesham College is part of college group WCG which trains more than 300 full-time engineering students who progress onto higher education or apprenticeships.
