Students from Wirral Met’s Motor Vehicle department were recently treated to a visit to the Lotus Formula 1 team headquarters in Enstone, Oxfordshire. The students were provided with a guided tour of the Lotus research and development and build environment and also met some of the people working there. Students were able to experience, first-hand, what a career in this industry would involve and the type of work they could be doing.
This is the first time that any college has been granted this kind of privilege and students were delighted to visit the centre. Motor Vehicle Engineering tutor, Patrick Malone commented “The trip proved to be a huge success for the students, as they were able to see first-hand how maths and English are such an integral part of their courses, as well as their practical work and training. The people at Lotus were so impressed with the calibre of every student and the quality of questions asked by each student”.
