Dyson Aims To Create A Vacuum Of Engineering Talent

Dyson Aims To Create A Vacuum Of Engineering Talent

Added to MTDCNC by MTDCNC on 07 November 2016

An advocate of the Brexit campaign, Sir James Dyson has announced plans to open an institute to train engineers that the inventor claims are desperately needed if the UK is to remain competitive for future generations. The Dyson Institute of Technology is planned to open in the autumn of 2017.

Aimed at developing the engineers of tomorrow, the £15m educational facility will be based at Dyson's campus in Malmesbury in Wiltshire and will offer a four-year engineering degree in partnership with Warwick University.

It is claimed that unlike other educational facilities, the undergraduates will be paid up to £16,000 with tuition fees paid by the institute. This certainly gives students an incentive to strive for an education in manufacturing. The students will mix vocational work at Dyson with academia based classroom studies. The students will also get the opportunity to socialise with Dyson engineering staff, which will further enhance student learning.

Speaking to the Times, Sir James Dyson said: "In theory, students will have a job at the end of it, no debt and perhaps most importantly they have lived among people who have great enthusiasm and dedication in helping to solve interesting problems."
