A hands-on industry experience

Middlesbrough College’s £20million STEM Engineering Centre is a unique and inspirational space, allowing you to learn new skills in a simulated industrial site!

We can take your skills higher in our state of the art facility, and get you ready for industry. Step inside and you’ll find yourself in a real work environment with high specification equipment that matches that of an industrial setting. Operating as a simulated industrial site, students will train in this facility as part of their studies to develop key skills required by employers and gain additional employability skills such as health and safety, permits to work, risk assessments, working at heights and confined spaces.

With industry trained experts developing and delivering our training, our aim is to deliver world class training and to shape the skills agenda for the 21st Century. We also work with a range of local, top employers to provide you with opportunities in industry and to get you ready for the world of work.

Students studying a full-time engineering programme at Middlesbrough College will be taught in our first-class STEM Engineering Centre. We offer courses in electrical, electronic, instrumentation, design, manufacturing and mechanical.

We also offer a range of commercial training courses for employers and adults and our team of industry trained experts deliver a range of programmes in specialist training in areas such as health and safety, mechanical, electrical, process and instrumentation, manufacturing and business improvement.

Process Operations & Maintenance (Distillation and Separation)

Incorporating a fully functional three phase separator for water, oil and gas, this is a world-class industrial plan for distillation and 3 phase separation. With columns and vessels interconnected by Kennedy grading, and platforms at numerous heights, the facility again emulates a build seen out in industry.
