The engineering project workshop is set out to mirror an engineering plant. The lathes and mills are separate from the work benches, allowing sixteen students to work in a safe manner.
The area is used for undergraduate teaching and project work by both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The workshop is also used for research work, where mechanical work is needed.
The workshop is equipped with industry-standard equipment, giving students the opportunity to work in a ‘real world’ environment. The equipment is also used by qualified staff when complex projects need to be manufactured for students who are not on an engineering based unit.
Technical maintenance of any mechanical piece of kit from around the University is produced, to aid in the smooth running of the teaching curriculum.
