Y12 Engineering Students Visit Caterpillar, Peterlee

IMG_0750 (1)Mr. Talbott took a group of Year 12 students to Caterpillar, Peterlee to gain first hand experience of Engineering/Manufacturing processes in the real world.

This was a fantastic opportunity to relate classroom theory to understand and reinforce how technology such as as CAD/CAM/CNC machinery, robotics and assembly techniques are used to create products.

The visit included experiencing how the material enters the factory, is processed, painted and assembled to the completed product.
