Welcome to Derby UTC

Specialising in advanced manufacturing and engineering, Derby Manufacturing UTC allows pupils (age 14-19) to study a science and engineering curriculum alongside core GCSEs and a wide range of enrichment activities.

Derby Manufacturing UTC, a state school specially designed for 14-19 year olds who have a real interest in science, technology and maths. Our sponsors and industry partners bring these subjects to life and help our students to apply their learning to solve real world problems. We are training technicians, engineers and scientists and our target is no NEETs.

What our students say

Choosing to go Derby Manufacturing UTC was a massive step in my education, it was a new school and I was to going into a subject in which I did not have a lot of experience – engineering. I was constantly told that it might be a bad idea and I would regret it, but looking back now it is one of the best decisions I ever made. I always knew that I wanted to go into engineering.
