Wer eine ausgezeichnete Ausbildung zum Ingenieur bekommen möchte, studiert hier.

This is the usual word order when we have a "Wer ..." subclause.

Can we say the following?

Hier studiert wer eine ausgezeichnete Ausbildung zum Ingenieur bekommen möchte.

What would be the differences between the two sentences?

Yes, we can. However, you still need the comma.

"Hier studiert, wer eine ausgezeichnete Ausbildung zum Ingenieur bekommen möchte."

This is a way of phrasing that puts immediate emphasis on the university being vital to receiving an excellent education as an engineer.

A person involved in marketing would choose to phrase exactly this way in order to promote a university.

The other way around it basically means the same thing, but instead emphasizes on the quality of the education.

Yes, your second sentence is correct. It should have a comma, though:

Hier studiert, wer eine ausgezeichnete Ausbildung zum Ingenieur bekommen möchte.
