Cambria’s first batch of Bachelor of Engineering degree students graduated this week at a special ceremony at Swansea University.
Fifteen Cambria students were awarded BEng Hons degrees in Aeronautical Manufacturing accredited by Swansea University with 65% of them achieving first class degree and 93% gaining a first or 2:1 degree.
Nick Tyson, Assistant Principal at Coleg Cambria said:
“We are delighted with our first set of bachelor degree awards and would like to congratulate our students on their wonderful achievement. It was a great pleasure to be present at the ceremony in the Great Hall at Swansea University’s new Bay Campus earlier this week.
“This is a major milestone for the delivery team at the Engineering University Centre at Cambria and we are thrilled that all 15 students have successfully been promoted as Technical Engineers following their studies.
“Our multi-million pound investment into higher education has clearly benefited learners, with the Engineering Centre at our Deeside site enabling learners to use the latest in simulation software and robotics in advanced manufacturing.”
In 2017 Coleg Cambria began the implementation of their Higher Education strategy building on their successes in Further Education and Work Based Learning. Partnerships have been developed with Swansea, Glyndŵr, Aberystwyth, Bangor, Chester and Liverpool John Moore universities and the college is now offering higher-level vocational learning pathways and higher professional pathways; full time, part time and via work based learning. This year, new degree and foundation degree courses have started in Applied Business Management, Education and Early Childhood Studies, Engineering and Construction.
