Brunel Designplus held a successful series of evening events to help guide this year’s final year BA and BSc Product and Industrial Design students on their final projects. Over 60 industrial experts helped steer and enhance Brunel’s design students’ major projects.
Following two highly successful years of review events, final year undergraduate design students once again displayed work to-date on their Major Projects including research findings and early design concepts. The students recently started some amazing major projects that cover a wide spectrum of topics from innovative products for the elderly and young, cycling accessories, energy efficiency and energy harvesting products, as well as furniture and luggage projects amongst others. The projects undertaken this year include over 30 collaborations with external organisations.
The response from the students was very positive and the input received was incredibly valuable in helping to shape and refine their major projects at an early stage in the process.
During the event, guests were encouraged to actively engage with students and hear firsthand about their concept directions and review their initial ideas. Their professional and commercial experience was an invaluable input to the students’ projects.
Many of our guests were inspired to maintain contact with the students they met and help mentor their projects through to successful completion.
Students complete their Major Projects between October 2012 – April 2013 and projects are exhibited in June at Made in Brunel 2013, see www.madeinbrunel.com for further details.
