The Aerospace workshop can be used by students to support design and build activities throughout their course.
Specific focus is developed on model making, electronic systems and final integration and assembly of flying vehicles. . The workshop is used for integration/final assembly and testing of flying vehicle projects. For example, student working in a group may use the workshop to assemble an aircraft they are building as part of a final year engineering project.
The workshop portfolio includes large fixed-wing aircraft, rotorcraft, and small fixed-wing aircraft. These systems have been used for photogrammetry, thermal sensing and environmental modelling and monitoring. We have also been pioneering with the use of graphene materials in aerospace and have built a number of drones in the workshop to demonstrate how graphene technologies can be applied in the real world.
- Assembly bays that can be dedicated to individual aircraft projects
- Fully equipped with power
- Other utilities required during manufacturing.
Open during normal teaching hours and timetabled extracurricular sessions.
Where possible and with prior arrangement, staff will work flexibly during the working day to accommodate specific support requirements which do not fit into the specified timetable.
