IXYS UK has declared its support for University Technical College Swindon, an exciting new concept in engineering education.

This new initiative will allow students at years 10 and 12 to begin a highly regarded, full time technical course of study.

“We recognise the importance of engineering skills, enterprise and employability in 14-19 education, particularly for young people in the North Wiltshire area. As well as providing longstanding support to the 3 secondary schools in Chippenham, we are declaring our support for UTC Swindon and our commitment to assist the college. The nature of our assistance is still under discussion but is likely to include careers advice, student projects and presentations relevant to the curriculum” - IXYS UK R&D Engineer Phil Townsend
