An engineering qualification provides a sound basis for a number of careers, whether you’re interested in building and maintaining machines, aircraft or oil, gas and energy systems.

There’s no better place to study engineering than in Scotland, with its rich legacy, tradition and engineering innovations through the ages, from steam engines to tarmac and feats such as the Forth Bridge and more recently the Queensferry Crossing. Be a part of this world-leading reputation of discovery and invention with Perth College UHI. More than eight million people are employed in engineering and manufacturing, making the UK the seventh largest manufacturing nation in the world, and creating a significant impact on the UK economy. The industry has a strong and positive future and replacement demand is expected to create employment opportunities for around 2,500 skilled people each year.

Career options within this sector can include oil and gas, on-shore and off-shore renewables, manufacturing, aerospace, transport and logistics, energy and utilities and construction.
