THE man in charge of Swindon's new Institute of Technology has previewed some of the courses on offer.

The £21 million facility is one of 12 being set up in the UK and employers who have helped develop 40 courses there say it could transform the educational landscape in Swindon.

The project will convert part of the North Star campus of Swindon College and be ready for September.

Managing director Chris Baesh told BBC Wiltshire: “That includes things like cyber-technologist, data analyst, manufacturing, engineering, and we also go into the creative industries as well, we’ve got content production and an industry-standard media studio with green screens and all the latest camera technology.”
