Year 4 projects involve challenges and opportunities designed to stretch and develop your capabilities and skills. You’ll work collaboratively in teams of product designers, engineers or mechatronic students while developing real-world solutions for ‘live’ industry or research briefs. Each team is supported and supervised by one or more tutors, but you’ll remain autonomous and responsible for delivering project outcomes on time and within budget. Students have reported that the Level 4 project has been one of the most rewarding experiences from their programme. A great deal of the learning outcomes are focused on developing transferable skills much sought after by employers.
Examples of recent projects include:
