Take a look at one of our employer partners, VISR at their Digital Reality Centre linked to the Institute:
The Institute is based on a collaborative partnership between a number of colleges, universities and employers in the region. Partners are working together to deliver, and develop, higher-level curriculum in digital, engineering and manufacturing, construction and agri-tech subjects. Digital and engineering businesses ViSR, CATCH, Skipton Building Society, GB Recruitment and ENGIE Fabricom recognised the need for investment in education to address their wider skills shortages and have signed up as employer partners to be involved in designing the appropriate curriculum, supported by research from local universities – University of York and University of Hull.
