Festival of Design & Engineering

Important Information: Unfortunately, due to the ongoing situation regarding Covid-19, we have taken the decision to cancel this year's on-campus Festival of Design & Engineering, which was due to take place in June and instead host a virtual alternative. The welfare of the staff and students is the university's highest priority and although very disappointing, we feel that cancelling this year's festival is the best action for current events.

We are working on making sure the final year students' work gets the celebration it deserves, so please check back on this page for updates.

The Festival of Design & Engineering is an annual exhibition of final-year projects by Design and Engineering students. 

The inspirational designs and prototypes on display take into consideration issues such as market need, function, engineering, sustainability, style and aesthetics. 

For an insight into last year’s students’ work, take a look at the projects from 2019.

“By displaying my product at the festival, I get exposure to a number of businesses in a short period of time that would not be possible otherwise.”
