Why Choose Engineering at Fife College?

A career in Engineering provides great job opportunities within many different industries. Engineers are highly sought after in emerging industries such as renewable energy, pharmaceuticals, digital infrastructure, food and fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) production as well as more traditional fields such as mechanical engineering & fabrication and welding.

From renewable energy courses, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering to learning about robotics and wiring techniques, we have a wide variety that fits your interests and career goals.

Our Engineering courses are suitable for every level of study, from a basic pre-apprenticeship training course or a certificate in engineering, up to HNC and HND level, which could allow you to progress on to an engineering degree at university.
