First open event of the year over-subscribed

We were delighted to welcome local students and their parents to our first open event of the year on Tuesday (4 October).

The event was over-subscribed, with over 300 people signing up to attend. Visitors were given tours of the building by current UTC Reading students and received a welcome talk from various members of staff. Several activities were on offer, including the opportunity to test reaction times on our F1 in schools race track.

Several of our industry partners attended to speak to our guests as they were shown around the UTC, including University of Reading, Cisco, Peter Brett Associates, AWE, ECITB, The IET and Think Engineer.

Principal Joanne Harper said: “It was fantastic to meet so many new prospective students and their parents at our first open event of the year. We are very grateful to our students and industry partners who came to help and contributed towards such a positive and exciting atmosphere throughout the evening. Applications are coming in fast and we would advise students to visit our website and ensure they get their application in soon. The deadline for applications is 31 December.”


Our next open event is on Thursday 3 November and we have a Post-16 event on Wednesday 7 December. Please book your place online.
