Cambria’s first batch of bachelor degree students have achieved stunning results with 100% pass rates in their Bachelor of Engineering degrees accredited by Swansea University.
65% of the learners gained a first class degree, with 93% gaining a first or 2:1 degree. This truly reinforces the success of all higher education programmes at Coleg Cambria, including teacher training where 100% of all learners qualified and passed their programme this summer.
Carys Davies, Assistant Principal at Coleg Cambria said:
“We are delighted with our first set of bachelor degree results and would like to congratulate our students on their wonderful achievement.
“Our degree programmes link with employers and are developed in partnership with Wales’ top universities. Coleg Cambria’s multi-million pound investment into higher education has clearly benefitted learners, with the HE Engineering Centre at Deeside enabling learners to use the latest in simulation software and robotics in advanced manufacturing.”
In awarding and verifying the College’s results external university examiners particularly praised the level of feedback and support for learners, the industrial relevance of the programme and the development of project management skills which were rooted in actual projects in industry.
The engineering degree programme has originally been run for Airbus students but from this September is also being extended to widen the engineering disciplines and extended to full time students and employees of other engineering companies.
The College is offering new degrees in Applied Business Management and Engineering with Swansea University plus Childhood Studies, Education and Teacher Training with Aberystwyth University and will be working with partner universities to develop more degree level courses each year, bringing the best quality of vocationally relevant degrees from top universities for learners in North East Wales.
Enrolments are still being taken for this Autumn for all Coleg Cambria degree programmes. For more information please visit www.cambria.ac.uk/higher-education or call 0300 30 30 007.
