Major Projects with our employers and Manchester Metropolitan University

A unique and important element of our UTC is your involvement in Major Projects. You will work closely with the University and employers, in teams to identify, explore, evaluate and justify the best solutions to real-life engineering problems. On completion, teams will present their project outcome to a large and informed audience, including the employer. These projects will enrich your learning while building crucial professional skills and characteristics. In Year 12, you will contribute to three / four Major Projects, one of which will be developed further in Year 13 and entered for the Extended Project Award (0.5 A Level).
