Our Design and Project Exhibition celebrates the work of our mechanical engineering students. Each year, we publish a booklet that documents their projects.

Our annual Design and Project Exhibition gives our students an opportunity to showcase their group and individual project work. The exhibition is opened by the Joseph Black Lecture, which is given by an eminent engineering expert.

The exhibition celebrates our  group design and business projects. These cover general mechanical engineering projects, racing submarines, drones, aerospace and Formula student teams.

We also showcase our final-year students' individual engineering projects. These include a diverse range of topics including aerodynamics, product design, environmental driven projects, manufacturing, biomedical and biomimetic activity, engineering process research, automotive research and so on.

The projects are frequently linked to the Department's core research activities.
