Industry-standard engineering and robotics training labs have been installed at a specialist institute in Rush Green.
The labs at Barking and Dagenham College’s East London Institute of Technology contain high-end equipment to give students hands-on training in advanced engineering and robotics.
Partnering with educational technology equipment experts Didactic Services, the college has completed three labs: mechatronics and industry 4.0, fluid power and electric power technology.
East London Institute of Technology assistant principal Jason Turton said: “We were teaching students using a variety of online simulation tools during lockdown so it’s amazing to use the real thing now.
“With this hands-on access to the latest industry training equipment, students will be equipped with the high-level skills required by modern businesses.”
