BUDDING engineers have set sail on a career in nuclear marine engineering after spending four days learning from the Royal Navy.
A group of youngsters with an interest in science and engineering visited HMS Sultan in Gosport to see where the navy trains its marine and nuclear engineers.
The activities were part of a four-day residential course run by the Smallpeice Trust.
The youngsters spent time on board training ship HMS Bristol, as well as visiting HMS Excellent, HMS Nelson, and HMS Sultan.
They also visited the Royal Navy Submarine Museum.
Gemma Murphy, from the Smallpeice Trust, said: ‘We were able to offer students an enjoyable but challenging insight into what nuclear marine engineering actually entails.
‘This is real engineering, solving challenges, refining solutions, and there is always a real engineer on hand to encourage and support the students.’
The Nuclear Marine Engineering Course is run by the Smallpeice Trust and is a subsidised residential course to help young people learn skills in engineering, design, technology, and manufacturing.
