The Uniper Board of Management has taken a number of planning decisions which mean that we will restructure the Engineering business as a whole and will discontinue parts of it. One of these decisions taken will be the closure of the Engineering Academy on Friday, 1st July 2022


Courses provided by the Engineering Academy will be delivered until the 1st July 2022, however we have limited availability but we will make every effort to accommodate your requirements up until this date.
