Higher Education & Degrees

The Gen2 Higher Education Department was formed in 2005 and delivers a range of higher nationals and degree programmes for over 300 students per annum.  Programmes range from HNCs and HNDs to Foundation and BEng Honours Degrees.

The department was established to meet the needs of industry, with degree programmes developed in state of the art training facilities by highly qualified lecturers with real industry experience.

  • Nuclear Plant and Process Technology
  • Instrumentation & Control
  • Electrical
  • Mechanical
  • Quality Engineering


These degrees (with the exception of Quality Engineering) have been accredited by the Institute of Measurement and Control and the Society of Operations Engineers under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.  Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).  An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).  Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
