    Course Launches at Space Centre

    November 9th, 2011

    Loughborough College have teamed up with the National Space Centre to design a brand new course aimed at aspiring engineers and scientists.

    Launched at the National Space Centre last night, the Space Engineering programme is the first of its kind in the UK.

    The course will include traditional A Levels in Physics and Maths as well as a vocational Engineering element delivered from a space perspective and is designed to equip youngsters with the skills they need to forge a career in the ever-expanding UK space industry.

    Lecturer Paul Olbison said: “We have put together a course that’s applicable to both industry and higher education to give students the choice to move in whichever direction they want to.

    “If they choose to move into industry then they will have the skills to do and will have a general qualification that engineering firms would be looking for.

    “They would also be able to go onto a number of university courses as well at the end of the course.”

    Teaching will be split between the Loughborough College site and the National Space Centre and students will be given the chance to undertake work experience as well as take part in master classes with industry experts.

    National Space Academy Director Anu Ojha added: “This course will open not only doors in space science but also for more traditional university courses like English and Maths that students would want to do.”
