Highfields is located on University Boulevard and houses our engineering courses.
At the centre of the site, you will find the Hub. This is home to the reception, library and canteen. Leading off from this are a variety of impressive workshops including fabrication, welding, robotics, electrical, programmable logic as well as lathe and milling workshops.
The centre is also environmentally friendly by collecting all of the rain water from the site and releasing it into a reed bed, in order to reduce the amount of water going into the drains.
