From Banff and Buchan College’s press release:
Mechanical Engineering students at Banff and Buchan College visited EnerMech in Aberdeen as part of their course.
During the visit the students toured production, repair & maintenance, testing workshops, which are some of the areas where the students aspire to gain employment.
EnerMech employs 1100 people and provides a range of mechanical engineering services to the international oil and gas sector.
Steven Wilson, CL for Mechanical Engineering says: “We are grateful to EnerMech for their support. These visits are an essential part of our full-time engineering students’ curriculum. Some students in attendance were from the Get Ready for Work programme. Their course is supported through Skills Development Scotland. It consists a broad range of engineering disciplines including manufacture, maintenance, electronic, electrical, fabrication and welding. It gives students a taster in Engineering which helps inspire an informed carer choice within the Engineering Sector.”
The tour offers students a real-world experience greatly enriching their knowledge and gives focus to their further learning, practical skills and theoretical knowledge in Maths, Science and Technology.
