About the Engineering design studios and workshops
Student design studios and workshops
These provide the tools and expert support you'll need to bring your ideas to life.
You'll use these to design, create and test your ideas, usually as part of project work.
Design studios have large desks where you can sketch your designs, and benches where you can build parts. There are also computer facilities for design and simulation work.
Equipment includes laser cutters, soldering irons and 3D printers. Technicians are available to give support when you need it.
Engineering Design and Manufacturing Centre
This is our professional manufacturing service. You'll use it to create complex and intricate components, from micro-satellite components to the wing section of an aircraft.
Equipment includes computer-controlled mills and lathes, sheet metal-working machinery, and robot arms.
