Welcome to MITEC School of Boatbuilding, Marine Engineering & Industrial 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.
