Design Workshop

The design workshop offers a variety of hand tools, power tools, woodworking machines and laser cutters amongst other equipment to enable students to produce design models.

This workshop is partner to the larger fabrication workshop and allows students to produce all types of models including concepts, prototypes, construction/design details, topographical models and final design models. 

Most design & engineering industries see modelling as vital to assist with the visualisation of designs and ensuring the validity of designs and the technical aspects of construction & manufacturing.
