STEM Centre - Phase two
With Phase One of the new college campus complete, we have started work on Phase Two, for our brand new future technology-focussed STEM Centre (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), which is due for completion in Summer 2024.
With the proposed merger of HCUC (Harrow College & Uxbridge College) with Richmond upon Thames College, we will provide many more opportunities for students, across the three colleges, with further expansion of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) provision through the West London Institute of Technology.
The STEM centre will provide a state of the art environment for training in engineering and construction, science, forensic sciences, computing and robotics.
Take a look at the virtual tour below to see what it will look like inside, you can also watch a video of the construction of the STEM Centre.
