The Tees Valley has become a hotbed for digital innovation and the technology industry is thriving!

Middlesbrough College is proud to support the expansion of Teesside’s digital sector by developing the digital workforce of tomorrow. To achieve this we offer a wide range of Digital qualifications through our digital school- MCDigital. MCDigital is committed to providing students with the most up to date knowledge and skills so that students can tackle real world problems and get the skills that local employers want.

Three computing students from MCDigital are taking their education higher in order to gain the skills to succeed in one of Teesside’s most exciting sectors.

Muhammad Asad, Tom Curry and Nabeel Hussain are all studying the BSc Computing degree at Middlesbrough College after completing their level 3 qualifications and foundation degrees at the College.
