Thinking out loud!


Students from Brunel's School of Engineering and Design have been making a big impression again this year, with the fantastic Made in Brunel exhibition at the Business Design Centre in Islington, North London.

Held over two days in early June, this annual exhibition provides a showcase for people graduating from degree courses in our School of Engineering and Design. These courses include Industrial Design, Industrial Design & Technology, Product Design, Mechanical Engineering and Multimedia Technology & Design.

Each graduating student has his or her own exhibition space, where they can show their final year projects and network with many notable visitors from industry and the media. This year we also welcomed student exhibitors from 4 of our partner universities around the world: Tsinghua University, China; The Indian Institute of Technology, Madras; The Rhode Island School of Design (in conjunction with students from MIT), USA; and Simon Fraser University, Canada.

Despite a transport strike, over 1,000 people visited this year's show, which had 'Thinking Out Loud' as its theme, focusing on the three key areas of 'people, fun and innovation'. Many world leading design-led companies were in attendance, including prestigious organisations with whom the School of Engineering and Design runs industrial projects, placements and exchanges.

Amongst our visitors were Rebecca Edge, Director of Audi Design Foundation; Emma Heatley-Adams, Dyson's Director of International Design; and Joe Ferry, Head of Design at Virgin Atlantic. Other companies attending included Williams F1, Bentley Motors, O2, Hasbro, Siemens, Chanel and Eaton Aerospace, as visitors or as participants in the special events taking place.

Of course the real stars of the show were the exhibitors. Over 140 people took part, showing that Brunel University's Graduates have a lot to offer the design world! Look through this newsletter to meet some of them.

Speaking about the exhibition, Prof Mike Short, O2's Vice President Research & Development , said: "When I visited Made in Brunel this year it stood out again as a showcase for talent, innovation, real prototypes, and for how university students can become engaged with business. I have no doubt that we will see many of the ideas helping to build markets , careers and new areas of innovation. It is really exciting to catch the energy and wave of innovation as it begins."
