Welcome to the Construction & Civil Engineering Department
Trips and Visits
Level 2 Electrical Installation students have the opportunity to go on a trip to Howsham Mill, a beautifully renovated 18th-century Georgian Gothic watermill, near Malton in North Yorkshire. The Mill is today run as an environmental education and community centre, generating hydro-electricity thanks to the gravitational energy of the water falling via the waterwheel and the installation of the first Archimedes screw turbine in the UK in 2007. This gives the students a great opportunity to see how electricity can be generated in a carbon neutral environment.
In March 2023, students also visited the York City Football Stadium where they considered sustainable techniques and engaged in a team building activity.
