Programme Summary

An Apprenticeship Programme will not only provide you with extensive knowledge and experience in the fundamental principles of engineering, you will also explore several specialist areas to help you shape the direction of your studies for the remaining time on your programme and beyond.

Equipment and technology

At the AMTC, our workshops are fully equipped with the latest state-of-the-art machinery and technology.

Our training centre was built in 2015 and will provide you with working knowledge of DMG Mori Seiki CNC machines, Bosch Intelligent Automation, Hydraulics and Pneumatics, ABB (IRC5) robots, PLCs, Co-ordinate Measurement Machines, Hexagon Metrology equipment and Hexagon PC DMIS, GOM Systems, 3D Scanning and more.

Placement programme

During your time at the AMTC, you will have the opportunity to undertake subject-specific work experience based on the three themes studied in Year 2.

These one-week placements will take place at the end of each 10-week module, to give you the chance to implement the skills and knowledge you’ve learnt so far in a working environment. The placements are also designed to support you in your specialist subject area for Year 3.

In Year 3, the AMTC will support you in finding an industry placement based on your preferred career pathway. During this placement, you will draw upon the experience and skills learnt during Years 1 and 2, ably supported by your employer and the AMTC, with the possibility of securing a full-time role post-study.


You will be assessed in your competence in meeting the standards required by both the work placement and your Programme trainer.
