Welcome to our 2016 Design Show website
This website catalogues a wide range of exciting, innovative and ambitious design projects produced by our undergraduate students during the academic year.
Engineering and the Environment is a diverse, ambitious and relevant community that supports educational programmes in Acoustics, Aeronautics and Astronautics, Civil and Mechanical Engineering, Audiology, Environmental and Ship Science. We challenge our students to invent, experiment, refine, prototype, communicate, be independent, and work in teams to develop valuable designs, build upon our expertise, apply scientific knowledge and engage with the world around us.
Engineering has the opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives and environments. This year our students have designed; horns that amplify, robots that can fish, bridges that connect communities, satellites destined for space, devices to improve mobility, systems that improve efficiency, sustainable mechanisms that generate energy, and wing-suits to break world records.
