Day 11 - METaL Project

Swansea University's metal project

METaL is a unique project funded by the EU’s European Social Fund, through the Welsh Government. Part of Swansea University’s School of Engineering, the METaL team are based in the Baglan Bay Innovation Centre.

Our aim is to address a skills shortage in materials and manufacturing through the provision of work based learning, leading to a general up-skilling of the workforce which will ultimately help secure sustainability for Welsh industry.

Our courses are taught over three days, and on successful completion our students gain a Level 4 qualification and 10 university credits. Whilst we focus on the area of materials and manufacturing, course titles range from CAD to Practical Metallurgy, Arc Welding to Corrosion & Coatings Technology.
