Design, Build & Test Laboratory

Equipment in lab

The Design, Build & Test Laboratory is home to a range of equipment. You'll be visiting this lab throughout your time here, getting hands-on with projects that test and develop your Engineering Science knowledge.

It was also used by the sixth-form students on our Headstart course this year, when they cut and welded steel beams to an exacting specification – before testing them to destruction!

Take a look at the photos below – or find out more about what they got up to.
