On Tuesday the 26th of February Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills, John Swinney MSP, officially opened the brand new Kelvin Innovation Centre in the Engineering wing at the Springburn Campus of Glasgow Kelvin College.
With an investment of £1.5m the College has updated fully its machine-shop technologies and fitted out a specialist area for exploration and research in the field of engineering technologies.
The Kelvin Innovation Centre’s key purpose is to encourage project-based experimentation by students researching into advanced and sustainable technologies, equipping them with much more than high-quality vocational skills. It is intended to encourage the problem-solving, team working and project management skills which are very much in demand by today’s employers.
An audience of the College’s key stakeholders and employer partners accompanied the Deputy First Minister on a tour of the new facilities.
