    • Vocational courses 
    • Work experience as part of course 
    • Interdisciplinary learning 
    • Close links with employers 

    Industry-standard facilities include:

    Paisley Campus – fully equipped manufacturing workshop; materials testing and analysis facilities; metrology laboratory; rapid prototyping centre; assembly and welding laboratories
    Hamilton Campus – new £2.1 million engineering centre opened 2008,with particular focus on the design and motorsport engineering disciplines
