Applications for community projects to access Engineering in the Community support

Posted on

Would you like a nature or rain garden area for your school? Do you need technology ideas for citizen groups?  Do you need help with structural or civil issues on your site? Read on to find out how you could access support from UWE Bristol students, in this guest post from Dr Corra Boushel.

The Department of Engineering Design and Mathematics at UWE Bristol is launching a new module called Engineering in the Community. This Group Project Challenge aims to set some real-world challenges for the engineering students on our Postgraduate Diploma course. The students will work in groups to come up with a design solution to a community problem, and may even make a prototype.

We are now looking for  community, voluntary and social enterprise sectors, and small businesses with problems to solve. Would you like a nature or rain garden area for your school? Do you need technology ideas for citizen groups?  Do you need help with structural or civil issues on your site? As part of their Group Project Challenge students will work with your community group to design an engineering solution to your problem.

The deadline for submitting your project is Monday 10th December. Projects will run February – July 2019.
