What will I learn?

“My goal is to become a marine engineer, and my course has improved my career prospects as well as providing many memorable experiences. I've driven a powerboat and worked on the engine of Aspiration, the College’s 38ft yacht, amongst many others; all great experience for employment.”  Leanne Cole
