Welcome to AUEA.

I am delighted to introduce Aston University Engineering Academy and Aston University Sixth Form which make up Birmingham’s University Technical College (UTC).

Life in AUEA and Aston University Sixth Form is both exciting and rewarding with possibly some of the largest range of opportunities and experiences available in any college. Our unique approach ensures the development of young people to be equipped with the right skills and knowledge for a career in engineering and science at all levels. We combine exciting and innovative learning through our partnerships with industry employers and Aston University. Our Ethos is built around high expectations and high aspirations.

Our role with industry continues to grow and expand and will result in our new students having more opportunities to excel and stand out than any other year group prior, especially with our expanding partnership with Jacobs and other leading local employers.  

As we start the year we celebrate our graduates achieving over 100 leading places on degrees and apprenticeships, including into some of the UK’s most prestigious science and engineering courses, including Rolls-Royce, JLR, Royal Navy and The Dyson Institute.

Following our commendation in the 2016 National BTEC awards 'School of the year' and winning 'Student of the Year', we were delighted to be awarded the the 'STEM school of the year' in the Education Awards 2018 and 'Outstanding Support for Students in the Education Awards 2019. Our focus  employer partnerships reflects our commitment to ensure that each of our learners leave our UTC equipped with not only an Education for Life via outstanding academic and technical outcomes, but a rich diversity of professional skills for the future that ensures that they stand out for future training and employment, putting them ahead of the rest.

Whether a potential student (family), staff, or industry employer, I look forward to working closely with you.
