JOBS & NEW DIRECTIONS:Nissan calls on expertise of students.
The second year students were invited to present their ideas following a number of meetings between course tutor, Steve Thorpe and NTCE intellectual property manager, Matthew Holmes.
The students have been working on their designs for the past four months. Nissan provided the students with computers and professional design software to help with the project.
Nissan also provided four engineers who acted as project mentors to the student groups, visiting them at the university as well as showing the students around Nissan's Technical Centre at Cranfield.
Course tutor Steve Thorpe said: "All the Nissan engineers were very impressed with the students' work and presentations and it elicited notable excitement and lively questioning.
"Students on the BEngAutomotive Engineering Design course enjoy being able to provide their input on live collaborative projects with industry leaders. This sort of collaboration not only provides the students with design and engineering experience, but the opportunity to present their ideas to industry chiefs is without measure."
