Engineering students win regional contest


Brunel's second year students are heading to Institution of Mechanical Engineers Design Challenge finals!

This year, Brunel hosted the Institution of Mechanical Engineers  (IMechE) Design Challenge, Greater London Regional (GLR) annual  competition - which took place on 17-18 April.

The brief challenged teams to design and build a device that can  climb and descend the inside of a tall clear pipe. Brunel’s ‘B’ team  were crowned Year 2 GLR champions with outstanding device performance  and design, followed by University of East London in second and Brunel’s  ‘A’ team in third.

The winners now go forward with their internal pipe climbing device  to the National Final in October at the IMechE headquarters in Birdcage  Walk, Westminster. Congratulations to our team, we will be rooting for  you in the finals!
