NWRC put me in the driving seat  says former Greystone student thumbnailFormer North West Regional College student Mark Shiels now works for luxury sports car manufacturer Aston Martin

A FORMER student of North West Regional College (NWRC) who now works for luxury sports car manufacturer Aston Martin, says the education he received at Greystone Campus was pivotal to him landing his dream job.
Mark Shiels, who came to NWRC after quitting a Degree in Computer Game programming, now works as a Senior Engineer in Power Train and Engine Calibration at Aston Martin's headquarters in Gaydon.
Recently during a trip back home to Limavady, Mark returned to the Greystone Campus, impressing his former lecturers by arriving in the all new Aston Martin Vantage.
Mark said: "It was great to come back to the college and meet up with my lecturers John Pollock and Gino Tierney who were very supportive of me."
“When I did my A-Levels I decided to go to university in England to study Computer Game programming, but I didn't like it and decided to come home."
