Trips and visits,and safety boots and work overalls
We were taught in a clear and simple manner so nothing was too complicated for us to understand. Our tutors delivered a high standard of teaching, as they have extensive industrial experience themselves. I would recommend this course to other students as a number of different skills and techniques are involved, which open a lot of doors to the engineering industry.
