The workshop suite is a major teaching and research resource used by students and staff at all levels.
Students in all of our programmes are encouraged to learn about materials by 'hands on' practicals. The range of practical activities includes model making, building component prototyping, structural testing, sculpture in wood and metal - activities which generally reflect the varied interests of both students and staff. Full supervision and advice is provided.
These workshops are operated and supervised by two full time members of staff qualified in technical, art and craft disciplines. They run induction courses in machine and hand tool use, and advice on health and safety issues.
The model making room consists of a workshop, material store and clean room/office.
Workshop staff run induction courses and advise on health and safety issues.
