Dyson Centre for Engineering Design



The Dyson centre offer a range of material that can be purchased for use in the centre for undergraduates.

The 3D printers are accessible and all under graduates will only pay for the weight of the entire print (whether the print is successful or not).

The lasercutter are assessable to undergraduates, if a training session is completed then the student my uses them unsupervised. If training is not needed that a technician is on hand to cut the material for the student. Undergraduate pay for the cost of the materials only.
