    The new facilities include Games Development Studios, Cyber Security Lab, Mechatronics Lab, Health Simulation Suite, Biome (creative hybrid space), Virtual Reality Experience Centre and Immersive Learning Suite.

    The new developments will support growing and priority industries with high demand for future employment. The realistic and innovative learning environments will inspire new ways of learning, utilising the latest in new technology and industry leading equipment and partnerships.

    John Beaty, Principal at BSDC said: “This critical investment into the College will bring a wealth of opportunities into the area, not only providing leading edge technology and infrastructure for future learners, but also creating opportunities for the cross pollination of skills to reflect the changing future skills needs of industry. This investment will enhance the outstanding partnerships we have with businesses throughout the area, creating a truly exciting and unique skills proposition for people locally.”
