The inaugural meeting of a new Member Association for the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) took place recently at the Automotive Engineering Centre on the Cornwall College Camborne campus.
Over 70 members and their guests attended the meeting which took place in one of the College's motor vehicle workshops and featured a lecture given by guest speaker Mark Carter from Robert Bosch Ltd, who talked about developments in vehicle safety systems.
New chairman of the association Bob Laity, who is also Vehicle Parts Operation Course Manager at Cornwall College Camborne, said: "It's been a great first event for our new association, and I'm really pleased with the turnout and the interest we've received. Mark's lecture was informative and entertaining and he's clearly very knowledgeable in his subject area. I hope this is the first of many successful events!"
Guest speaker Mark Carter said: "I think the evening was a great success and the atmosphere was extremely positive. The audience were really engaged and interested and I look forward to giving more lectures in the future."
Dave Linnell, Principal of Cornwall College, said: "I'm so pleased this event was successful for all involved and look forward to future events. Having connections with institutions such as this really benefits our students, as the knowledge and information gained at these events can really help to enhance the already high level of teaching and support they receive."
