Sylvester works as a Service Engineer at one of the UK's foremost integrators of technology-based security solutions and end-to-end managed services. He studies a HND in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at GC to support progression in his career.
"I've always been interested in engineering and took the decision to study at Gloucestershire College to gain additional qualifications, alongside my job as a Service Engineer.
My lecturers were superb; always willing to help and very supportive to those who want to learn. The equipment is perfect too. During my first year I was tasked to design an instrument for the lower level students to use for testing, and in the second year, we worked as a collective to design a 3D printer for a parts supply unit.
My next steps will be to continue my studies and go on to study a BEng(Hons) in Electronic Engineering at UWE, with a view to becoming a Design Engineer in the future."
