What our students say:

Student Profile Eduardo Thumbnail

Eduardo Adeng is a BEng Design Engineering student: "A great aspect of this course is the practical approach to learning, where the theory is put straight away into practice. I really enjoyed the process of transforming a concept into an actual object and the project-based nature of the course means that it is always diverse and fun. The facilities that we have access to are great. I often use the laser cutter, putting into practice the Solidworks (CAD software) skills that we've learned. I find it very helpful in my projects, especially developing prototypes."
