11 March 2010
On 10 March, Engineering students visited the Metronet Underground Engineering Training Centre in Acton. Metronet is one of the largest and busiest engineering companies in the UK offering 30-40 places per year on engineering apprenticeship schemes for young people wishing to become maintenance engineers.
The visit started with talks from Phil Howard, lead trainer for Metronet’s apprenticeship scheme, as well as key trainer Roger Ramm. The students then toured the facilities, observed current apprentices at work and had an opportunity to ask questions. Back on campus, the students described the visit as ‘inspiring’.
