New Engineering Centre

Sunderland College will be offering budding Engineers in the region access to state-of-the-art learning facilities.

Sunderland College has unveiled its plans for a new engineering facility at its Hylton campus. It’s part of the college’s multi-million pound investment in to facilities at several of its centres.

More than 300 of the college’s students will benefit from the investment in the facility which has been designed specifically to meet the industry’s needs. When completed, it will include all the latest equipment for students learning across the subject including manufacturing, production technologies and welding.

Nigel Harrett, Sunderland College’s acting principal, said: “We’ve spent a great deal of time discussing with industry experts precisely what facilities are needed to teach engineering to the highest standard. As a result we are confident that this new facility at our Hylton campus will be able to deliver exceptional learning facilities for our students and help them achieve their full potential.”

Work is expected to begin by the New Year and is due for completion in August 2013, just in time for the start of the next academic year. The college hopes the new facility will attract even more engineering students for next year’s enrolment.
