The Campus for STEM Innovation for the Eastern Region
We are delighted to announce that we will be launching our Campus for STEM innovation for the Eastern region, officially launching in September 2019. We are thrilled to be opening this new centre of excellence, made possible through investment from the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and key business involvement.
At the STEM Campus we will be looking to educate the Innovators, Scientists, Engineers, Manufacturers and Digital Professionals of the future in state of the art facilities and in a focused collaboration with industry.
What is STEM and what will the STEM Campus provide for our community?
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We live in a world that depends on STEM and it is well reported that there is a shortage of engineers and scientists, which is why we are creating this excellent environment and great courses that will get young people into an exciting career in all sorts of sectors, providing high value employment and uncapped opportunities.
Our campus for STEM Innovation will provide technical training and a skills pipeline in engineering, sciences and digital technology at Level 3 through to Higher Education, particularly at technical Levels 4 and 5 as well as training for teachers.
Our STEM campus will offer a high quality curriculum for its students that will involve a hands on, practical approach to study where they will get the opportunity to work with some leading employers and organisations. Each course will offer students a pathway through to a future career in STEM.
