About us

The Engineering Innovation Network-South West is a major project being led by Wiltshire College. Delivered with our partners Swindon College, The University of Bath and Bridgwater College the project has been enabled by a £375,000 grant from the European Regional Development Fund through the South West Competitiveness Programme 2007-13. 

The project aims to assist a minimum of seventy seven engineering companies throughout the South West over the three years by providing two days of valuable business support for FREE
