Royal Navy opens its door to students as they visit HMS Sultan and HMSÂ Collingwood
STUDENTSÂ from University Technical Colleges (UTC)Â were given theÂ opportunity to learn about engineering with the Royal Navy when they visited HMS Sultan andÂ HMS Collingwood.
During their visit students received aÂ brief on weapon engineering and career options available as well as witnessingÂ demonstrations.
With 2018 the '˜year of engineering', a cross-government campaignÂ aims toÂ encourageÂ young peopleÂ into the industry.Â
Students, aged 14-19, from UTCs across the country, spent the week-longÂ visit living on board the Type 82 training ship HMS Bristol, based in Portsmouth.
The visit to HMS Sultan was packed full of hands-on air and marine engineering activities includingÂ learning aircraft maintenance skills.
Student Lucy Robinson, 14, said: '˜It's been brilliant, we've been givenÂ a lot of really challenging things to do, like pulling an engine apart.'
