Why Siemens Believes Crewe Engineering & Design UTC Is Important
Siemens is a strong supporter of the UTC movement in the UK, not least as we believe that a practical, vocational education is highly desirable in preparing the next generation for careers in UK Engineering and Manufacturing. Crewe Engineering & Design UTC will impart technical proficiency and enthusiasm for engineering in new generations of young people, addressing the importance of raising the profile of this study area. The UTC will ensure graduates’ relevance to all subsectors of advanced engineering, by supplying an augmented pool of skilled, work-ready young people which will counteract the skills deficiency within this sector.
