Their aim is to develop skilled and enterprising professionals who can make a significant contribution to engineering and science in Derby, Derbyshire and the East Midlands.
Porterbrook is a keen supporter of the UTC, and is working in partnership with the college to help develop students engaged in STEM subjects. Our long-term view is addressing the skills shortage in the rail industry by creating strong employment and career development opportunities, and contributing a variety of support to ensure UTC maintains its high standards and achieves its academic and cultural objectives.
As well as working in partnership with UTC, Porterbrook donated a wheelset from a wagon to the lobby of UTC for display purposes. Alongside a Toyota car with its bonnet removed, and a Rolls Royce jet engine, it gives students a great opportunity to take a closer look at large pieces of engineering.
