New university teaching facility at NPL
St Mary's University College in Twickenham, London, has introduced a new Applied Physics degree, which will use a purpose-built teaching facility at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL).
The new teaching space is located in the main NPL building and comprises a teaching area with room for 40 students, a dark room, two stores and office facilities.
The first students began the Applied Physics course in September 2013. The degree programme is designed to support students in their future careers via a strong engagement with high technology companies at the cutting edge of research and development. The majority of the experimental and project work undertaken by the students will take place at NPL. The students and staff will have access to the NPL Library and staff restaurant, as well as the teaching area.
Andrew Hanson, NPL's Outreach Manager, said:
"St Mary's and NPL are within walking distance of one another and we are delighted to be able to offer this modern teaching facility for the practical sessions of the Applied Physics course. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the lecturers Elisabetta Canetta and Dan Hilton, the St Mary's laboratory technicians and all the students to NPL."
