Emerging Technologies Centre

A New Learning Environment

Students can benefit from…

A Modern and Dynamic Workspace

Fitted with modern classrooms and open plan study spaces, students can loan laptops and book meeting rooms.


Space to Collaborate

The mezzanine hosts a bright, open area for business-oriented work to happen allowing students to engage in work experience with SME and microbusinesses who don’t have a base.

Tour The Emerging Technologies Centre

The facility, developed with support and funding from the EM3 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), features modern teaching spaces, virtual reality testing areas, IT suites and more.

The main area can be used either as a teaching space, or changed to a conference arrangement for big events such as graduation ceremonies. All furniture is designed so that it can be moved to suit different needs and styles of learning.

New Technology includes…

Drones

Misty Robotics

Misty is purpose-built for developers, has the tools and docs you need to easily build her skills, and is readily extensible via third-party APIs, hardware modifications, and additional sensors.

LEGO MINDSTORMS

LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 brings project-based learning to the world of computer science and STEM, enabling students to improve critical-thinking, problem-solving and collaboration skills.

Our Communication Centre

Designed for students to collaborate with SMEs and Microbusinesses. Our Communication Centre is a professional workspace with Wi-Fi access, print facilities, a meeting room and spaces for both individual and collaborative working.

We know that some students don’t get to partake in work experience for their first choice companies. This is due to those businesses not being able to offer students an appropriate work experience setting, usually because their business is run from home or while travelling. Our Communication Centre is the solution for students who wish to work for a small business!
