UTC Swindon is a specialist STEM college, which means that the university and the industry-led curriculum is specifically designed to educate students with a passion for elements of science, technology, engineering and/or maths. The curriculum is an academic one (it is not ‘hands-on’) but also benefits from some practical aspects delivered with the involvement of industry partners. UTC Swindon takes students at Year 10 and Year 12 (Sixth Form).
