Year 13 pupils studying the BTEC Engineering Diploma course visited Thales Electronic Systems company. Their visit was organised by Mr Millar and Mr Cairns and introduced the pupils to this highly specialist engineering industry based locally.
The tour of the company consisted of observing Computer Aided Design facilities, leading to the realisation of manufactured equipment using high-end technology Computer Aided Manufacture machinery. The pupils could not speak highly enough about the Thales company tour and their staff. A special mention of thanks must go to the father of Jamie Freil who liaised with Technology and Design Department to set up the visit.
