Opened in September 2013, The Centre for Engineering and Renewable Energy (CERE) at the Ulster University Magee Campus offers a range of courses in Engineering.
Developing from the successful delivery of engineering courses over the last 30 years, Ulster have expanded to offer courses on the Magee Campus covering all aspects of Renewable Energy and Mechanical and Manufacturing and Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
The development of local industry is a driving force for the courses with the intention to develop the local talent to service the ever increasing need for capable engineers.
The region has a wealth of small and large engineering firms operating across the spectrum of engineering technology with traditional and next generation techniques in use. The skills learned on the courses on offer and the placement therein will equip the students to transfer directly to positions in industry, with job roles ranging from designer to manufacturing engineer and project manager to installation and service directors.
The students will have the skills to implement the new manufacturing techniques and design skills as well as the experience to make projects happen. In Renewables in particular the courses will provide industry ready engineers to address the current issues in the industry as well as developing new forms of power generation and distribution.
The courses on offer provide a bright and sustainable future for the North West region and represent an exciting development from Ulster University.
