Plasma cutter donated for future engineers

Thanks to the generosity of many sponsors and donors, we have taken another small step towards our new Engineering and Design Technology Centre.
A number of sponsors and donors have been supporting the initiative since its launch, and thanks to East Hampshire 14-19 Consortium and The Roger Brooke Charitable Trust, a new plasma cutting machine has now been added to our existing facilities.

It is hoped that the new centre, which will increase places by 120 students a year, will be built by 2015 to support the growing number of students taking Engineering and Design Technology courses. A recent report by Engineering UK stated that engineering companies will have 2.74 million job openings over the course of the current decade, making training and education in the industry all the more important.
