Engineering learners at Derby College have spent a week gaining an insight into the advanced composites manufacturing business at epm:technology's £6 million manufacturing, research and development facility in Derby.
A group of 24 Derby College Engineering learners have just returned from a two-week trip to Derby's twin town of Osnabrück where they gain specialist training in robotics at a local company.
Derby College has launched the risual Autodesk Academy at the Roundhouse to upskill teachers and learners in the latest Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology software.
Derby College has teamed up with Derby-based epm:technology to boost the number of young people entering the workplace with skills in advanced composites manufacturing. Applications are now being taken for the epm:technology Advanced Composites Academy which will start in September. An open day for potential learners to find out more will be held at the Roundhouse on Tuesday July 14 between 3pm and 7pm.
With a national shortage of engineers, an under-represented female workforce, and following the success of our Females into Engineering event at our Roundhouse campus, Derby College will be hosting further Females into Engineering events to promote the range of career opportunities within the engineering sector.
