As universities continue to grow their digital capabilities, investing in infrastructure suitable to support future strategies is essential. City, University of London is found needing to support a rapidly multiplying number of user devices 24/7; the responsibility is magnified as City University operates in 24 buildings spread across London. The need to meet the demands and expectations of 18,000 students and an additional 2,000 staff members is no small task.
Leeds City College, one of the largest FE institutions in the country, has officially opened its University Centre.
Based at the former College House on Park Lane, a ribbon cutting ceremony took place in the presence of the West Yorkshire Lieutenancy’s Major Stan Hardy, the college’s principal Colin Booth OBE and the University Centre’s Dean of Higher Education, Janet Faulkner.
Leeds City College has partnered with Young Enterprise and Johnson & Johnson’s Bridge to Employment initiative to deliver a three-year project with South Leeds Academy.
The project will give 48 students the opportunity to experience a range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects, in partnership with Johnson & Johnson companies such as DePuy Synthes, Janssen Pharmaceutical, LifeScan and Noramco.
