The world needs more engineers. Yet employers say many graduates lack practical experience, leadership skills and technical expertise. Harper Adams graduates are industry ready from the first day on the job, with the skills, knowledge and experience engineering companies want. With our project-focused curriculum and placement year you can change your horizons and achieve more than you think is possible.
“Without a placement year and the reference from it, I don't think I would've got my graduate job at Bentley, where I'm working specifically on the design and improvement of their V8 engine, used in the highest spec vehicles sold.”
Tom Lindley, MEng
Make no mistake, these courses are tough - you'll need real motivation and drive, and be prepared to put in the hours. You'll need self-belief, confidence, and be able to work both in teams and independently. But the rewards are worth it. And you'll get a huge amount of help and guidance from staff who are professional engineers with expertise in many areas including vehicle and machine design for off highway and agricultural applications, electronics and hydraulics. This is an extremely supportive environment with staff readily availability for one-to-one study help.
