SGS Berkeley Green UTC Campus
SGS Berkeley Green UTC will be located at the Gloucestershire Science and Technology Park near Berkeley on a campus managed by South Gloucestershire and Stroud College. The College will have full-time Post 16 Engineering provision on site and the University of Gloucestershire will also be offering degree programmes on campus in Cyber Security.
The new £15million UTC will be based at the former Berkeley Laboratories; the site has been at the cutting edge of science and technology for over forty years, mainly in support of the commercialisation of nuclear power.
The adjoining Berkeley Power Station (now disused) generated clean, safe electricity for over thirty years, until it entered a decommissioning phase in 1989. At its peak the power station and laboratories employed nearly 2,000 local people.
The Berkeley power station was the first commercial nuclear power station, Archive information can be found here Berkeley Power Station
The UTC campus is currently being designed, but will adjoin the South Gloucestershire and Stroud College building which opens in September 2017, focused on Engineering. Further updates will appear on this website.
