Well done to our Interns!
Student Success as Matt and Andy pass with First class Honours!
Great news for Matt and Andy who were with us during their Internship year in 2017. They’ve both graduated with First Class Honours with their BSc Product Design Degree from Nottingham Trent University.
Having finished his degree, Andy has returned to work for us on a contract basis. Having performed so well during his Internship, he is currently our go-to-guy during times of high demand on our own workforce.
His final project at University was the Peddle-Ohm. A turbo trainer that not only burns calories, but generates power. This is aimed at the cycling and camping industry to provide both training and a portable source of power.
Matt did exceptionally well with his final project! Inspired by first-hand situations with his Grandparents he developed a Smartwatch which detected falls in the home and alerted pre-determined contacts to the situation. Even leading to his 5 minutes of fame moment when he was mentioned on the local news, radio and on the NTU website
As well as working on the Balcony project, Matt was involved in a lot of Detailing projects for various clients, using AutoCAD, Inventor and SolidWorks.
Both Matt & Andy’s designs were put on public display at Nottingham Trent University’s Art and Design Summer Show 2018.
We wish them all the best in the future and we know they have great careers ahead of them and will be valuable asset to any company!
