Underneath the iconic former GWR Water Tower, Ms Dench took the hands of a Brokk 180 demolition robot to break ground for the first time on the major constrcution work of what will be a brand new 10m state-of-the-art educational facility.
 
It's set to welcome in September 2014 six hundred 14 to 19 year olds interested in pursuing a career in engineering.

The on-site Old School Building and the iconic Water Tower will be key features of the college.
 
Both are Grade II listed structures and will be treated sympathetically, with the Water Tower being restored and brought back into educational use.
 
Sponsors and partners of the University Technical College were in attendance including UTC Swindon directors from Oxford Brookes University and Johnson Matthey Fuel Cells.
