The Diamond building
You will have all your lectures and labs in your First and Second Years in the Diamond building which was built specifically to deliver Engineering teaching. Your theoretical learning will be reinforced by practical lab sessions using industry grade equipment to help prepare you for your future engineering career,
The Electronics and Control lab
The Electronics and Control lab in the Diamond will be one of the labs you have most of your practical sessions in. Here you will create solder, circuit boards, test currents and much, much more. Watch the video below to see what a second year lab consists of. Please note this was filmed during the 2020 pandemic and all social distancing requirements were adhered to.
The Clean Room
The Clean Room in the Diamond reproduces the sterile and controlled environment used in industry required for the fabrication of semiconductor devices and materials used in items such as mobile phones.
