Strict access control is extremely important for new University Technology Colleges
The government has approved the opening of two new University Technology Colleges (UTCs) in the South West area, a news report reveals.
The future UTC for South Devon will be set in Newton Abbott, will focus on engineering, water and the environment and is estimated to cost around £9.7m to open. The second UTC, for South Wiltshire, whose estimated costs are set at around £40m, will focus on science and engineering and will be set in Salisbury.
The South Devon UTC is sponsored by The University of Exeter, South Devon College, Teignbridge District Council, Galliford Try, Centrax and South West Water and the school is planned to open in 2015.
The partners behind the South Wiltshire UTC include the University of Southampton, 43 (Wessex) Brigade, Wiltshire College, Wiltshire Council and major employers including QinetiQ, the Health Protection Agency, Tetricus Science Park, the Defence Scientific and Technology Laboratory, Wallop Defence Systems and Chemring Countermeasures. This university technology college is set to open in 2014.
