If you are passionate about the environment, and you want to help develop a more sustainable world, then the subjects on offer at the UTC will give you the opportunity to do this.
Applying these subjects through engineering could be the way you can make a real difference to the world in which we live. Sustainability, energy saving and recyclability are now at the core of all engineering design. Whether you want to help organisations reduce their impact on the environment, or build sustainable energy systems, such as wind, wave and tidal, engineering is the way that you can achieve it. Through your chosen subjects and alongside our employer partners you learn about:
Using energy in ways that are cleaner or renewable.
Veolia at its Energy Recovery Facility turns household waste into energy to light and heat our homes.
EON as an energy generator is looking to harness the potential of wind power in the English Channel with its proposed offshore wind farm ‘Rampion’ close to Brighton.
EDF Energy through nuclear power are key players in the low-carbon economy with a strong focus on reducing the harmful waste of the bi-products of nuclear energy.
CTEC are specialist design engineers that have developed ground-breaking heat recovery systems which utilise known and new steam power technology. Developing products that are materially efficient, recyclable and bio-degradable.
Bright well design and make a range of products where reducing the energy costs of manufacture, choosing materials that are more sustainable, using less harmful chemicals, or making products that can function using less energy or water to function effectively.
LEAP Environmental provide site investigation, geotechnical design and environmental consultancy services. They are involved ground exploration and develop sustainable engineering solutions for the construction industry.
South Downs National Park has achieved international recognition as a new UNESCO ‘Biosphere Reserve’. Not only to look after and improve the natural environment, but also better engage people in the nature on their doorsteps and promote action to reduce the environmental impacts of our lifestyles.
