We believe that converting the work done as part of the degree course into specialised, industrially recognised technology certifications should be the norm for our industry. For example, we put all first-years through the Fusion 360 certification. For us, it has yielded immense benefits. The students get an early opportunity to see the results of their hard work in the module whilst beginning their journey to job readiness. Lots of them left the certification sessions really pleased that they had passed as it validated their skillset.
