Academia. Brave New World

On 31 March, the Department of Civil Engineering and its parent institution, Plymouth Polytechnic, ‘ceased to be’. On 1 April, their places were taken by the Department of Civil & Structural Engineering and Polytechnic South West. Whereas the former institution was a Department of Devon County Council, the latter ’enhanced and extended’ Institution, which includes the former Seale Hayne Agricultural College at Newton Abbott, Exeter College of Art & Design, and Rolle College of Teacher Education in Exmouth, is an ‘independent’ Higher Education Corporation.
