AQTD visited the University of Chichester to meet with it’s Heads of departments and discuss all things new at the university for 2018.
Whilst visiting the Bognor Regis campus, we had the opportunity to get a sneak peak at their most exciting development- the Engineering and Digital Technology Park.
The university describes the cutting edge Engineering and Digital Technology Park as putting a little STEAM behind STEM. By bringing together science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics courses on one state-of-the-art site, we aim to produce graduates that have enterprise skills, creativity, technical knowledge and are equipped to enter the graduate workforce.
The new facilities are designed to offer hands-on experiences in partnership with local industry. This, coupled with their problem-based approach and a focus on applied research, develops graduates who are able to move and flex across the engineering, technology and creative areas, equipping them to address the challenges that real businesses face.
The Engineering and Digital Technology Park will deliver 500 new science, technology, engineering and maths undergraduate and postgraduate student places per year by 2020. The project is supported and receives funding from HEFCE and Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership.
