Our Public and Uniformed Services students enjoyed an exciting session with the Royal Navy recently, who brought with them their state-of-the-art virtual submarine experience.

Taking inspiration from a flight simulator originally designed by British Airways to help train pilots in the cockpit, The Royal Navy now uses this 3D technology to help their trainee marines get used to and navigate around their submarines.

The students got the chance to virtually explore the decks of a Vanguard Class Submarine, giving them a true feel for life onboard, a great insight for our students interested in joining the Royal Navy.

The students also had the chance to learn more about the advance of Cyber Warfare and how the Royal Navy respond to these cyber-attacks. To do this, the students were given specialist coding equipment and were tasked with programming the device to listen to a set of commands, to give them an idea of the skills the Cyber Security team use to identify and respond to new and advancing threats.

Public and Uniformed Services Tutor, Kelvin, said: “Thank you to the Royal Navy for running this interactive session for our students. Sessions like this are a great opportunity for the students to hear from industry professionals, seek advice about future careers, and allows them to get hands on with industry standard equipment to help to prepare them for their future job roles.”
