Dyson Centre for Engineering Design


Within the Dyson Centre we have a large variety of hand tools that are available for undergraduate use. As you can see from the picture below, our tool board has a great variety of the most commonly needed tools and equipment from hammers and screwdrivers to pliers and clamps.


We also have many more tools that are stored within the Dyson Centre that can be booked out and used on request. Got an odd looking screw that you can't seem to undo or a bolt that you can't seem to shift? We probably have the tool for the job, just ask us at the Dyson Centre Desk or send us an email.


Along with the tools that we have within the Dyson Centre there are also many benches that can be used for projects, be it for personal use, a 3rd/4th year project or society. During Michaelmas and Lent term we have circa 10 benches that can be used for projects. Outside of these terms there are be up to 40 benches that can be used.

Our benches are also commonly used for Outreach activities, event days and as society meeting places.

Whether you want to use bench space for 5 minutes, a few days or even longer, please just come and talk to us at the Dyson Managers Desk or send and email to the Dyson Centre Manager and we will try our best to accommodate you.
