What our students say...

George Kavanagh

“It’s geared for new industry, now that everything’s turning green we need ways to reduce our dependency on fossil fuel, to make savings and not waste energy. And ways to find alternative forms of energy as well, wind, wave, water. I’m very happy with the facilities, the lecturers are very helpful. And Moodle is good, you can do stuff at home at night or at weekends, it’s all on the site so you can print it off.”
