Land Based Engineering at East Durham College, Houghall Campus

Here in the UK (and beyond, too!) the farming industry is big business.

With an ever-growing demand for skilled agriculture professionals, there are huge amounts of opportunities for people to get involved in agriculture.

That’s why at East Durham College we offer a new and exciting apprenticeship pathway in Land-Based Services Engineering.

You’ve all heard of engineers, right? Well, engineers work absolutely everywhere, including in the agriculture, plant and horticulture industries!

The basic definition of land-based service engineer is that you will work as an engineer who will be responsible for the design, upkeep or maintenance of a wide variety of agricultural equipment.

We’re talking being the first point of contact if a tractor goes wrong; we’re talking about potentially being the engineer behind the latest innovation in horticultural equipment. It’s all about putting your practical, mathematical and scientific skills to use to make the day-to-day work of those working in these industries professionals easier!

Becoming a land-based service engineering apprentice is the perfect way to get your start in these exciting industries.
