Why the UTC?

Lincoln UTC has a dynamic and inspiring vision – to develop the next generation of Scientists, Engineers and Computer Scientists who together will help solve the global challenges that lie ahead of us all.

To achieve our vision, our philosophy is clear - in pursuit of excellence, we create a supportive, innovative environment and develop professional, respectful relationships.

This is an education revolution, a unique opportunity for students aged 14-18 who are passionate about Science, Engineering and Computing - to be inspired and to succeed beyond their imagination.

Welcome to a
new way of learning

Dr Rona Mackenzie Principal

“Their ability to work effectively, both independently and as team members, and their innovative, creative and dynamic attitude towards working and learning, will ensure that they are highly employable...”

I am privileged to lead Lincoln UTC and excited by the opportunities that lie ahead. Our first cohort of students, travelling from across Lincolnshire, joins us in Years 10 and 12. They have a unique opportunity – to train as scientists and engineers in the exciting context of real-life industry experiences. My goal is to ensure that their individual and collective success is at the heart of every action and decision made at Lincoln UTC. We will guide them as they lay the foundations for what will be the start of an exciting educational experience that leads to outstanding achievements in the fields of engineering and science.

Graduates of Lincoln UTC will be well rounded, confident and articulate. Academically, technically and practically experienced in Science and Engineering, they will be comfortable working in industry and prepared for a lifelong journey of learning throughout their working careers.

They will be committed to the highest standards of achievement and attention to detail, seeking to be the best they can be in their chosen field. Their ability to work effectively, both independently and as team members, and their innovative, creative and dynamic attitude towards working and learning, will ensure that they are both highly employable and successful in obtaining places at universities or with employers of their choice. Lincoln UTC graduates will be the very best scientists and engineers their potential allows as they finish their schooling at 16 or 18.

I am sure you will be excited by what you read on our website and have further questions that you wish to explore. I encourage you to attend one of our many Open Days, events and activities so that you can meet our staff, ask questions and explore your future at Lincoln UTC.

Student Competitions

Our students learn their academic knowledge and technical skills in very practical methods. We are keen to see what our students are inventing, creating and designing, both in the UTC and in their spare time at home. Send us a photo to our twitter feed or Facebook page @UTCLincoln and show us how ingenious you are!

The Learning Environment & Campus

Lincoln UTC has been designed to reflect the worlds of industry and higher education. Students feel as though they are operating in a working environment, wearing business attire to the UTC each day and operating their day independently from bells. As they work in the UTC they use cutting edge technology in Science, Engineering and Computer Science, reflecting the exciting challenges of the technical industries in which they are immersed. Our facilities have been purposefully designed to meet the needs of our challenging curriculum and our industry partners, who are the future employers of our students.


How to apply

Lincoln UTC admits up to 160 students into Year 10 and Year 12 each academic year.

There are no entry requirements for entry into Year 10. Students must have a strong interest in Engineering and/or Science and a desire for a combination of practical, technical and academic modes of study. With a longer working day from 8.45am until 4.30pm, the highest standards and challenging expectations, students must be prepared to commit fully to UTC life.

The minimum entry requirements for Year 12 students are 5 GCSE qualifications, grade A*-C, including English and Mathematics. Specific entry requirements apply to each pathway and they can be found on the curriculum pages.

Register to attend

A fantastic Open Evening on 28 November will be followed by another on 27 February 2017. Visitors that included primary school winners of our Computer Science competition, enjoyed a range of talks and tours, the highlight of which must surely have been the two fire alarm evacuations precipitated by the Science Department as they set fire to jelly-babies, custard powder and a host of other excessively energetic thermal reactions.
