Welcome to MITEC School of Boatbuilding & Marine Engineering

Sponsors 2014/2015:  Tygavac

If your passion is for the water or boats why not consider a career in the marine industry? The UK is one of the world's leading boatbuilding countries, with market leaders such as Sunseeker and Oyster making significant contributions to UK export figures. MITEC offer a number of City & Guilds vocational courses leading to careers in marine engineering and traditional or composite boatbuilding.  However, if it's a career at sea that interests you, MITEC also offer an Extended Diploma in Marine Engineering as an alternative route at level 3.

Congratulations to past MITEC students (2008-2010) Paul Reisberg, David Vivian and Hugh Woodroffe who helped build the royal barge 'Gloriana' - the 94ft barge that was presented to the Queen as part of her Diamond Jubilee celebrations. <click here for more information>

Congratulations to Stefan Doughty, Alice Pluckrose and Robert Krelle who were part of the 12 man crew of the Pembrokeshire Gig 'Cwch John Kerr' (the first boat to be built by MITEC students when it opened in 2000) when it joined historic vessels, steam boats, canoes and tugs in the royal pageant on its journey up the Thames on 3rd June 2012.

Congratulations to Craig Wheeler (Ledwood Mechanical Engineering Ltd) and Ian Harries (Mainport Engineering 1990 Ltd) who competed at the UK finals of SkillWeld 2012 in April 2012 and finished 5th and 7th respectively. Well done to you both.
