Faculty of Building, Engineering & Energy

The Faculty of Building, Engineering & Energy represents a range of specialisms in the construction and engineering sectors.

We provide excellent access and articulation routes to employment and more advanced study. We ensure our programmes are industry relevant and that they meet the needs and aspirations of both our students and industry partners. Our students benefit from access to highly qualified and experienced staff, and train with sector-leading, industry standard equipment in state-of-the-art workshops.

We focus on ensuring equality, diversity and inclusiveness for all. Our pioneering Women into Construction and Women into Engineering programmes outline our commitment to addressing the gender imbalance in these sectors, and are significantly increasing the talent pool for prospective employers.

As an innovative college, delivering the first Foundation Apprenticeship in Engineering in Glasgow, we are committed to developing a talent pipeline within the science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) sectors.  We have also been recognised as one of the first STEM Assured regional colleges in the UK.
