Working with Industry

Godfrey Syrett Visit

This week, students from yr 2 visited North East manufacturer Godfrey Syrett as part of a “live” industry linked project.    The students are developing design solutions to a variety of problems centred on the future office and better learning environments.

The trip included a presentation from Financial Director Craig Billingham, a factory tour and review of a range of existing products.

The students will be presenting their designs to the company in early May but the story is not likely to end there so watch this space…

Product Design Showreel 2012

Another chance to see the Product Design Showreel that was on show at the New Designers Exhibition in London July 2012. The showreel showcases the work of our graduates from 2012. The exhibiton was a great opportunity for our students to get their work in front of 100’s of professionals from the design and manufacturing industries. This year’s final year students will be presenting there from the 3rd – 6th July. The exhibition is held at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London.

Arcade Games Project is Ergonomically Sound

Full size test- rigs were made in the workshops

1st year Product Design students at Teesside University recently enjoyed a very challenging group project to design an ergonomically sound Arcade Game for the Future. Students carried out research into existing games, anthropometric and ergonomic data, and built their own test-rigs and models to make sure their designs were completely viable for all audiences. Students selected a team leader for their groups and everyone got a job that suited their skills. The results were a resounding success and  demonstrated how enthusiastically students had risen to the challenge of not only designing but prototyping and testing their ideas out on real people. Well done to all!
