Frankie Stennett joins BWT Alpine team

A former engineering student from UCM has entered the world of Formula 1 with the BWT Alpine team.

Frankie Stennett will operate and programme machinery and produce components for the cars, test rigs and bespoke pit-equipment.

During his time at UCM Frankie studied at the William Kennish Engineering Centre and the Hills Meadow Advanced Manufacturing Training facility. A key component of his studies involved industry apprenticeships which he completed with Ronaldsway Aircraft Company and Triumph Actuation Systems.

Juan Kinnish, Assistant Programme Manager for Engineering at UCM said everybody at College is proud of Frankie's achievements and hope his success can inspire more young people to consider engineering as a potential career path.
