Why choose a Degree Apprenticeship?
With a Degree Apprenticeship you get a great qualification and a career boost. It’s the perfect opportunity to develop your skills and knowledge through work-based learning, as you earn.
Who is this course for?
We are looking for able and motivated, high-calibre students.
This course will equip you with a thorough understanding of engineering principles and practices.
An Electrical/Electronic Technical Support Engineer must be proficient in a wide range of skills, underpinned by academic understanding, to enable them to work effectively. Apprentices will therefore complete a Degree that will support the fundamental scientific and mathematical principles that equip them with the understanding required to operate effectively and efficiently at a high level within any of these sectors. This will be supported by vocational training to develop the required competencies specific to particular roles within the chosen sectors.
What you'll do
- Electrical and electronic engineering roles are part of a rapidly evolving industry, so your career options will be diverse.
- Our Engineering Innovation Centre enables you to work on real-world projects with commercial partners in state-of-the-art facilities.
- You’ll learn and thrive in our specialist engineering workshop and electronic and control system laboratory.

Information for employers
An apprentice is employed to do a real job while studying for a formal qualification, usually for one day a week at one of our campuses or training centres.
This course meets Apprenticeship Standards and your apprentice will have the knowledge and skills to either succeed in their chosen career or progress to the next apprenticeship level.
Benefits to the employer
- The programme is a great way to address skills and knowledge gaps in your workforce, retain and attract staff who want opportunities for professional development through a high-quality degree.
- Recruit from our pool of bright students with the core skills, knowledge and work-readiness to help contribute to your business.
- If your payroll is under £3m, you don’t need to pay the Apprenticeship Levy. However, you can get funding towards the cost of training and assessment of apprentices. You only pay 5% - the government will co-fund the other 95% (up to the funding band maximum).
This course is based in the School of Engineering located in the Faculty of Science and Technology
