Through an innovative curriculum, developed with leading scientists from industry and academia, UTC Cambridge builds bespoke learning solutions delivered in a state of the art science and technology environment that empowers students to manage their academic and career development.
Cambridge is a major worldwide centre for research and development in the bio-medical sciences, life sciences, healthcare, and the rapidly emerging Environmental Science and Technology industries. Many of the world’s largest and most successful research facilities and pharmaceutical companies are based in Cambridge. Cambridge is home to 185 biotech companies, 17 of the UK’s publicly quoted biotech companies and a quarter of the public biotech companies in Europe. There are currently over 400 Environmental Science and Technology companies in the UK, and in excess of 250 of these are located in Cambridgeshire. Cambridge CleanTech Ltd., an organisation supporting the growth of environmental goods and services (“CleanTech”) companies in Greater Cambridge and beyond, will act as the conduit to engage these additional companies as they emerge.
The Sanger Centre for genomic research (Wellcome Trust), the Babraham Institute, Cambridge University Health Partners, Cambridge University Hospitals, the Medical Research Council, and Napp Pharmaceuticals, ZEISS, Medimmune, Amey Cespa, Mott McDonald, along with many other companies based on both the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and the Cambridge Science Park are fully engaged partners in UTC Cambridge and give UTC Cambridge learners unprecedented access to a multitude of inspirational people and resources.
It is a fully comprehensive mixed-ability UTC, where young people follow personalised programmes that fit their individual needs and meet or exceed their career aspirations. They learn in a caring but challenging community where high standards of behaviour and commitment will be rewarded with the best and most exciting opportunities for achievement and successful progression.
The admissions philosophy is to widen access to, and participation in, a high quality hands-on science and technology-based curriculum designed to meet the needs of individuals, employers and HE Institutions now and into the future.
