LPW is assisting with the curriculum at Riverside College.

3D printing specialist LPW has formed a partnership with Riverside College, based in Widnes, UK, to provide training in additive manufacturing (AM).

 Riverside College is working with LPW to help shape their engineering course curriculum, which will help improve the training provided in the college’s £3.6 million engineering and construction center.   The new center provides training in traditional engineering methods as well as emerging new technologies including AM.

‘There has been a rapid expansion of demand for innovation and new technology skills by local employers,’ said Riverside College head of skills and enterprise Jayne Smith. ‘It will be invaluable having a prestigious company as LPW to help us shape the curriculum to ensure our students increase their employability opportunities by providing them with the skills employers need.’
