Industry Partner Events a Success for City UTC

South Yorkshire teenagers gathered at two UTC open events to learn about the latest opportunities in engineering.

During November and December our UTC Sheffield City Centre campus held two collaborative events with two of our industry partners, aiming to help prospective students understand some of the exciting opportunities available within engineering.

The first event was held in collaboration with global engineering company Siemens and The University of Sheffield, and took place in the iconic Diamond Building. The event focused on careers in automation, robotics and digital factories. Attendees had the opportunity to see live demonstrations, tour the Diamond Building, hear about courses at the University and apprenticeships at Siemens, as well as hear about the Post 16 offer available at UTC.

The second event was held in collaboration with the National College for High Speed Rail, and took place at their Doncaster Campus. The rail industry is well known for having an ageing workforce, and this event aspired to show young people the opportunities available to them in HS2, Britain’s upcoming high speed rail network. Visitors toured the facilities, tried out VR learning platforms and got up close with a genuine Eurostar train, as well as hearing about the offer at both institutions.

Both events were well attended, and feedback from the attendees was positive.

The events were a great example of the progression opportunities available to students who study at UTC Sheffield through our industry links.

Alex Reynolds, Principal, said: “Engineering employers are crying out for talented young people with high level creative, technical and problem solving skills and academic knowledge which they need to boost business growth.”

He added: “We were delighted to work with our partners on these two events, which showcased some of the great progression opportunities available to young people across Sheffield City Region.”
