Engineering students at Coleg Sir Gâr have won a silver and bronze at a Welsh final of Skills Competitions Wales.
The electronic and electrical engineering students competed against colleges from north and south Wales in the Advanced Industrial Electronics category. As part of the brief, competitors were tasked with constructing and testing an electronic circuit where they used their skills in fault-finding followed with a theory test.
Skills Competition Wales, backed by the Welsh Government, offers students, trainees and apprentices in Wales a chance to challenge, benchmark and raise their skills by taking part in local competitions across a range of sectors.
Kevin Chilton, assistant curriculum head for engineering at Coleg Sir Gâr said: “Our students did really well and may be able to progress to future competitions which is great experience for them and has a positive impact on their careers.”
