New Year Update

Although this post comes quite a lot after the new year, it is the new year for the engineers as we have all just finished our exams. Finally after a grueling few weeks, we have started to get back to the grind of building the car. Due to a few space issues at the university, we are getting different parts of the car built across the country. This has both been a blessing as we have not been forced to rely on only local companies but also a curse as it is a logistical nightmare. However, it is all starting to come together as we move into an intense period of manufacturing.

In other news we have been helping potential applicants to the University on visit days, designed to entice them into Engineering. We have been particularly focusing on the environment in place for Student Led activities and have excited many budding engineers who are all now bored of their A-Levels and can't wait to get to university to start getting their hands dirty with various projects.

We are also lucky enough to have been accepted doing a talk for the Festival of Science. The lineup looks very enticing and we can't wait to share some of the things that we have learnt with members of the public, other students and staff. More information can be seen below:
