Lews Castle College UHI has once again recruited engineering students from countries across Europe to study on the BEng Hons Mechanical and Energy Engineering degree courses offered at their Stornoway campus.

The degree courses offered at the college are highly rated amongst students and higher education institutions in France, Switzerland, Italy and Germany amongst others.

This has meant a steady influx of overseas students coming to the college each year to live and study in the unique environment of the Outer Hebrides.

Overseas students very much appreciate the warm and friendly welcome they receive from local residents and always settle in quickly to island life, enjoying the sporting and leisure opportunities the islands afford.

Lews Castle College UHI are in the fortunate position of having highly qualified and experienced staff who deliver engineering courses across the Highland and Islands region, as well as to local students with varied opportunities for students to engage in work placements and research activities.

Recent undergraduates from the college have gone on to complete post-graduate courses at St Andrews and Strathclyde Universities specialising in Mechanical Engineering, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence.

If you would like to find out more about Engineering courses offered at the college, why not visit the college campus in Stornoway where staff would be pleased to discuss the courses on offer and show you around their facilities. Or check out the college website.
