£4m Advanced Engineering Centre awarded

We are delighted to have been awarded the construction of the Advanced Engineering Centre at Bedford College.

The Centre will house newer, lighter, analytical equipment, BIM Software and robotics. The Centre will allow students to move through to the higher engineering and degree level training, essential in today’s manufacturing and civil engineering markets.

It will increase student numbers by an additional 300 full-time and part-time students, and 150 higher level apprentices each year – thus meeting some of the huge demand from employers for skilled Engineers.

The space will provide students with room to experiment with intelligent design, analyse and assess problems, and develop real life solutions in the safety of the classroom and the virtual world environment.

Works are due to commence by Ashe this Spring.
