Engineering Futures at NPTC
Former Neath Port Talbot College (NPTC) student David Winfield returned to his old campus this week to inspire engineers of the future.
David, who is currently a postgraduate student studying a PhD at Swansea University in Mechanical Research, spoke about his involvement with 'Bloodhound'; the world's fastest car. He also spoke about life at the University and the many engineering courses available that could lead to exciting career choices including Aerospace Engineering, Medical, Sport Science and Environmental Engineering amongst many other opportunities.
Another major talking point was the University's Formula Student car which David brought along with him.
Mike Rees, Head of Engineering at NPTC, said: "It was a truly inspirational session enjoyed by a wide range of NPTC students. David is such a positive role model and an example of how, through hard work and dedication, young people today are still able to engineer a career in the field of study that interests them. There is nothing better than seeing someone who loves what they do and I'm sure that David, along with the students present, will have wonderful futures ahead of them."
