A rather belated post but we had a great night at the Student Starpack Awards back in July last year. To celebrate winners of the Schools and Students Starpack 2017 Awards, a presentation was held on 28 June at the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining headquarters at 297 Euston Road, London. Product Students Ralph Deloso, Beth Sanderson and David Donaghue picked up there GOLD awards.
Last night Product Design graduate Rhys Morton got news that his Final Major Project has been selected as a finalist for the SBID (The Society of British and International Design) 2018 Student Awards for the Product Design category. His project was to design and develop a new kind of prosthetic foot using polyurathane and nylon that is incredibly strong, durable and flexible.
He has a chance to win £1,000 as a category winner, and to win £30,000 as an overall winner. His project can be viewed on the SBID website:
Rhys will be attending the ceremony at the House of Commons 29/11/18 at 7pm.
2nd year students went to Andrew James last month to present their concept ideas for a range of kitchen utensils.
Andrew James is an award winning company specialising in kitchen equipment and gadgets. Established in 2005 they have become a major force in internet retailing.
The students are now preparing their final work for a presentation, here on campus, in the coming weeks.
