Recently colleagues from the Japanese Embassy visited the UTC South Durham with sponsor partner Hitachi Rail Europe. The college has a specialism of engineering and advanced manufacturing, raising the aspirations of students in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) vital to the UK economy.
Staff and students were thrilled to welcome their visitors, and colleagues from the embassy toured the UTC, meeting staff and students, trying out some of the engineering equipment.
The visitors met some of the next generation of engineers with Year 10 and Year 12 students showing visitors around the building and encouraging them to try virtual welding!
UTC South Durham is a state funded Technical School and College with a specialism in Engineering and Advanced Manufacture on Aycliffe Business Park.
