Opening in Autumn 2018, the software projects laboratory will offer world class facilities and equipment specifically for senior undergraduate and MSc students. It is a versatile area for industrial led projects and comprises four complementary areas to facilitate the project life cycle from initial concept through design and testing to a functional prototype. The facilities are underpinned by in-lab support from specialist technicians and academic staff.
The four areas comprise a high-performance computation suite, group working spaces, specialised meeting rooms, and quiet study areas.
These labs provide essential practical experience to consolidate taught theory in industrial applications, helping students develop valuable employability skills and broad engineering industry awareness.
This space is dedicated to undergraduate and MSc project work only.
The group project work undertaken in the labs facilitates contact and networking opportunities with our industrial partners, providing valuable transferable skills and knowledge which make our students among the most sought after in the sector.
