Get creative! As an Engineering student, you'll have access to state-of-the-art equipment to fine-tune your skills. You'll benefit from the wealth of knowledge and experience that our workshop teams offer.

We can turn your dreams into reality. If you have the vision to design a new product, the design for manufacture review with our expert technicians will ensure your project is production line ready.

Hack Space

The Hack Space is a fantastic new creative area for all our Engineering students to use.

The 103sqm co-working space on the ground floor of the Merchant Venturers Building has been designed with students to provide a space for hacking, making and crafting. The ethos of the space is one of experimentation and collaboration. It is a safe space to test new ideas and make mistakes!
