Year 10 Engineering Students Discover the Heritage of Rolls Royce

Our Year 10 Engineering students recently took part in an exciting visit to the Rolls-Royce Learning and Development Centre and Heritage Centre at Derby. Rolls-Royce Engineers gave the students a guided tour and explained the history and development of the company from its very beginnings to the present day.

The trip was part of the students’ most recent Engineering Design project, where they are designing a fuel pump capable of delivering 10,000 litres of fuel to a plane in less than 10 minutes for less than £10,000.

During the visit to Rolls-Royce, students were able to view pistons and connecting rod designs first hand, and learnt how they are used to develop power in older aero engines. They were then shown the latest models of Rolls-Royce engines, which are being delivered to customers all over the world today, and were able to compare the vast improvement on older piston-based engines due to a massive improvement in thrust.

Students also had the opportunity to speak to current Rolls-Royce apprentices at their Apprenticeship Training Facility to find out about entry requirements, career opportunities and hints and tips on the application process.

The Rolls-Royce Engineering Design project is just one of many exciting employer-led learning projects that UTC Sheffield students take part in across the year. You can find out more about our Engineering specialism at https://city.utcsheffield.org.uk/curriculum/engineering/
