Deeside College engineering department plays host to German students

THE Deeside College engineering department has played host to a party of German motor vehicle students as part of a European exchange programme.

The programme, which brings together colleges from across Europe to work jointly on a common project, will also see Deeside College students make the trip from Flintshire to Bremen in May.

Students from the Technische Bildungszentrum Mitte School in Bremen, in the north of Germany, spent a week at Deeside College exchanging skills and working alongside Flintshire students to begin the process of creating a bilingual e-dictionary for the motor vehicle industry.

Deeside College lecturer Carl Black said: “This exchange project has been a brilliant experience so far for all of the students who are involved, and we are looking forward to making the trip to Bremen in the coming weeks.

“The project allows the two sets of students to share what they have learnt while on their different courses and trade the different techniques used.

“Working alongside each other in the workshops to produce an agreed product is great way of helping the students to build team-working skills that span cultural and language barriers.”
