Former College Student Turned Rolls Royce Engineer Returns to Inspire Students

A former Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor student who is now employed by one of, if not the world’s greatest luxury car manufacturers – and later aero-engine manufacturer - returned to the college’s engineering campus at Hafan Pwllheli…where his story began.

It was a welcome return for Thomas Morris to the place where his engineering career took off. Whilst at Eifionydd school Thomas studied for a BTEC Level 2 in General Engineering alongside his GCSE subjects. He then progressed onto the BTEC Level 3 Enhanced Engineering course at Hafan Pwllheli.

Turn the clock forward, and Thomas is now employed by Rolls Royce on the Advanced Practical Apprenticeship scheme in its commercial aircraft engine division.

Thomas gave an illuminating presentation to current first year engineering students regarding his experiences since leaving college: from going through the initial selection process at Rolls Royce, to the work he has been doing at the company’s Rolls Commercial Aviation Engine Division.

One tutor said: “Thomas is following an exciting career path with Rolls Royce. The staff at Hafan are proud of his achievements after receiving his foundation training in engineering here with us at Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor. Who knows, maybe our current students could be the next generation of engineers to follow in Thomas’ footsteps and become high-flyers too.”
