New Automotive Centre at Somerset College

Somerset College is currently in the process of constructing a new state of the art Automotive Centre, which is due to open in September 2013. 

The new purpose-built facility, which comes as a result of a significant investment, will be located on the College’s main Wellington Road campus, and will house all Automotive Engineering courses from the 2013/14 academic year onwards.

The new centre will contain thirteen servicing bays, making it one of the largest automotive garages within Taunton and the surrounding areas, benefitting from the most up to date, industry standard equipment and facilities. This will provide the ideal platform for the College’s automotive students, to learn and develop motor vehicle skills within a fully operational environment, from foundation learning right up to degree level.

The Automotive Centre is the latest area of the College to be developed in recent years, with nearly £3million being invested into the College since 2011 alone. This includes the recently refurbished Construction Centre, which was launched towards the end of 2012 and can now boast first class machinery and equipment across all of the College’s Construction Crafts, from Carpentry and Joinery to Painting and Decorating.
