Engineers are on the right track
Year 13 engineers gained inspirational ideas at Reading Train Care Depot.
Our Year 13 engineers have been busy designing and fabricating prototype products for BTEC Unit 5 ‘A Specialist Engineering Project’.
Several students wanted to complete a project related to railway engineering, so, to help them gain inspiration, a fantastic visit was held for the students at the GWR-run Reading Train Care Depot.
We were hosted by engineers from the company Alstom (who manufacture rail rolling stock).
Students got up close (under strict health and safety rules) with several train types and took all the necessary photos and measurements to kick start their Unit 5 engineering projects.
