Supporting Skills Development in Lincolnshire
The Institutes of Technology have been formed across England to enhance the career and employment chances of young people and adults.
The programmes that have been created at the institutes have been designed in collaboration with employers, colleges, and universities to ensure students are work-ready and to offer clear career progression.
At the Lincolnshire Institute of Technology, our aim is to develop the talent and skills to drive exciting new age industries and play a role in enabling a dynamic, technology driven economy.
What is the Institute of Technology?
The Institute of Technology is a unique collaboration between the University of Lincoln and Further Education providers across Greater Lincolnshire. The IOT specialises in delivering higher technical education with a focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects, opening up opportunities for students to gain industry-relevant skills to overcome some of the key challenges facing the technology industries.
The courses have been designed to develop the essential skills and experience needed for a range of pathways to ensure learners complete their training career-ready.
A multi-million-pound investment has been made to refurbish our oldest Grade II listed Gibney building to house the IOT.
It has been designed to replicate the latest progressive working environments.
We have also equipped all of our workshops and classrooms with the latest IT hardwadware, computing, electrical engineering and automotive engineering equipment.
Automotive Engineering Pathway
These programmes are for learners who have a keen interest in advanced automotive maintenance and are looking to progress into Master-Technician status.
These qualifications have been designed to be practical, engaging and motivating to support learners in gaining the advanced knowledge and skills required by light, heavy vehicle, lift truck and transport refrigeration maintenance employers.
The Digital economy has become an integral part of our country and facilitated the rapid growth of many digital businesses.
College students will spend a significant time working with state of the art equipment in our new facility, working alongside Risual and Microsoft inspiring young people to enter the digital profession down one of the new 2021/22 pathways:
- HE Diploma; Mobile, Web, Virtualisation and Streaming Technologies
- HE Certificate; Computer Automation, Internet of Things Development
- BEng Degree; Control and Network Connected Devices
- BSc Degree; Computer Science
- HE Certificate; Digital Learning Design
Electrical Engineering Pathway
These programmes are aimed to develop engineers with a broad understanding of Electrical Engineering or Control Engineering applied to the current and emerging technologies and issues of the Electrical Power / Sustainable Energy sector, the Production Technology sector and the Control via connected devices sector.
In all three sectors we will include current and emerging technologies such as Electrical, electronic and control technologies, Internet of Things, Networking and Supervisor control.
- The Sustainable Energy sector will cover Conventional and Sustainable energy sources and energy distribution and usage and explore how these can be best monitored and managed by applying the broader generic technologies studies.
- The Production Technology sector will consider current Automation, Robotics system and small / rapid production and prototyping technologies and explore how these can be best monitored and managed by applying the boarder technologies studied
- The sector of Control and Network Connected Devices covers general control approaches along side developments in Internet of Things and device networking and explore control and monitoring can be applied over a diverse range of connected devices.
