University Centre Somerset has a thriving Engineering Department with both the Energy Skills Centre and the Advanced Engineering Centre in Bridgwater, plus the National College for Nuclear in Cannington, providing outstanding learning environments.

We provide state-of-the-art, bespoke workshops and teaching areas for construction professions and
various disciplines within engineering from manufacturing to nuclear. Significant investment in recent years across our campuses has seen these departments thrive. As our partnerships with EDF Energy, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and the National Skills Academy (Nuclear) demonstrate, we deliver education that is grounded in the requirements and expectations of the 21st century.

With professional staff and advanced modern facilities, UCS offers a comprehensive range of full-time and part-time higher-level engineering qualifications including HNC, HND, Foundation Degree and Honours Degree options. Some qualifications are also offered as part of an Apprenticeship. All courses involve a mix of practical and theoretical learning and open up a world of possibilities in your chosen career.
