Top marks for learning facilities

The facility will provide technical, classroom, welfare and office facilities for all aspects of engineering, manufacturing and business skills training. In addition it will drive better engagement with schools and teachers to help promote advanced engineering and manufacturing as a career choice for gifted students.
