South West Institute of Technology
Working in partnership with the University of Plymouth
In September 2019, following a rigorous selection process, the South West Institute of Technology (SWIoT) proposal was approved to deliver a range of higher-level courses across the digital, engineering and manufacturing sectors. It is a unique collaboration between a number of partner organisations, each investing in the development of state-of-the-art facilities for training in technical subjects to create Britain’s next generation of highly skilled technicians and engineers.
The SWIoT draws on expertise from 12 partner organisations, including Bridgwater & Taunton College, City College Plymouth, Exeter College, Petroc, and Truro and Penwith College, all part of the University’s existing partner college network. They are joined by digital experts from Oxygen House and the Met Office, both based in Exeter, and engineering and manufacturing experts from Babcock in Plymouth and TDK Lambda in Ilfracombe.
The project is also supported by both Heart of the South West and the Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs).
