The agriculture and food production industry has some of the most advanced and progressive engineering in the UK. If you enjoy the outdoor life and would like to work on a variety of technologies, a career in land-based engineering or construction plant could be for you.
Engineering Technicians work on many types of technology including robotics, computer-based imaging, GPS technology, science-based solutions, climate forecasting, technological solutions and environmental controls.
Mechanical Engineering Technicians design, install and repair industrial plant machinery and parts.
Vehicle technicians, mechanics and electricians repair and service the mechanical parts and electrical circuitry of many different types of vehicles.
I did land-based engineering at Level 2 full-time here before I became an apprentice and it helped me to learn a lot before going into work. When I'm here I get to learn and do things for my portfolio that I don't do day-to-day at work. I get on with everyone here, it's a really nice working environment.
I really want to be an excavator driver, so this course has allowed me to get the qualifications for that whilst learning the theory as well.
