The principle of the design concept for the University Technical College (UTC) is to provide an exciting and interactive learning facility to enable inspirational education for future students. The look and feel of the UTC is to follow its specialism by exposing the ‘bones’ of its structure and services, demonstrating an honesty in the materials used – thus reflecting the engineering and construction specialisms.
The key features of the design include:
Specialist learning facilities will engage students’ imaginations by giving them the opportunity to design, problem solve and produce as individuals, as well as in small groups.
Industry partners in our UTC’s unique Employer Alliance will contribute technical equipment used in their industries to familiarise students with the systems and materials they will encounter on work placement and in employment.
