David Austin, who was born in Shrewsbury and raised in Telford, attended the college’s King Street campus to study A levels in fine art and product design.
After progressing to the University of Wolverhampton to gain a degree in Architectural Design and Technology, he is now an architectural technologist with award-winning jmarchitects, which has its head office in Edinburgh and several other offices across the UK.
He said: “My time at college was great. I still talk to quite a lot of people I went to college with, and it really prepared me for university.
“Without the college education, I wouldn’t have been able to get to university and ultimately wouldn’t be where I am now.”
David said: “I went to the King Street campus because they offered the courses I needed to progress.”
