On Tuesday 30 May Brunel University London celebrated the talent of the University's final year students through the annual Brunel Engineers Showcase.
Brunel is proud to contribute to the development of highly creative engineers, who graduate with an in-depth academic knowledge and powerful problem-solving skills acquired by working with academics at the forefront of engineering research.
Students explore diverse areas, from the microscopic level of nanotechnology to global systems being developed to overcome the challenges of depleting energy supplies and the threat posed by accelerating climate change.
The projects exhibited in the Brunel Engineers Showcase demonstrate the talent and ability of students from Brunel’s College of Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences to generate ideas and concepts, and apply design principles to drive innovation.
Brunel enjoys a long tradition of strong and extensive links with industry and the professions, informing the relevance and direction of the University’s programmes and research.
A number of these industry partners have given their backing to this year’s achievement awards.
