  • Whats the deck intake like throughout the colleges?

    Found out today that STC have only taken on 35 new deckies this phase and yet theres 8 classes of engineers?! whats the intake been like in the other colleges? was there a huge recruitment drive for engineers this year?

    Surely there ain't 8 classes of engineers? I Just started the other day on the HNC course which got split up into 3 groups, I can't see 4 classes worth of FD students?

    Have not had the pleasure of meeting any of the deckies yet so I cannot comment on how many there are!

        I think that a Deck/Engine split is starting to emerge between different colleges, many colleges seem to be proving an excellence in either Deck or Engine and companies are only adding to this trend.

          D/C from STC, Phase 1 was kind of okay but Phase 3 was totally messed up. Granted it's a new course but shouldn't it all be ready to train us? They tell us to give them a chance to get everything ready and set up, I can't imagine the MCA Orals Examiner extending the same courtesy!
