About Altens Campus

Our Aberdeen Altens Campus houses many of the engineering, construction and automotive courses on offer, and is perfectly situated at the beginning of a main arterial transport route to Stonehaven and the South.

The building has been designed and landscaped to provide lots of social areas, which are vital to the life of any modern educational campus, and the main building incorporates a wide variety of CO2-reducing measures.

The Campus is home to construction and automotive workshops, engineering workrooms, a top floor restaurant offering views out to the sea, a state-of-the-art fitness suite and more!

“The course provides you the skills to communicate whatever it is that you’re trying to sell. It’s been fantastic. It gives you a really supportive environment – especially if you are coming back into the world of education from work. That’s the route that I took and it’s been really fantastic in that regard. But if you’re a school leaver as well, College gives you practical skills alongside the theory that you’re learning, so even if you decide not to go to uni, you’ve got those skills there and you can utilise them to go into work. It’s really, really valuable in that way.”
