Welcome to our Makerspace
Located in the heart of Engineering Building A, the Makerspace is an environment like no other – a place which rips up the rule book on traditional disciplinary boundaries and provides the space and tools to create, manufacture, design and collaborate as part of an inclusive ecosystem of innovation.

Since opening our doors in December 2022, we’ve welcomed hundreds of students and staff from across the University, hosting a variety of pop-up events and workshops and helping to transform a diverse range of individual student and society-led projects from ideas into reality. During this time, we’ve also collaborated with a number of high-profile partners, transforming the space into a hub for knowledge and skill share between our Makerspace community and experts across a variety of industries.
Student society projects
Providing the space and tools for societies to deliver exciting projects and events.
Delivered in partnership with industry experts such as Sony and Texas Instruments.
Supporting large scale coding events around robotics and sustainability.
Showcasing the work of our Fashion Business Technology cohort.
Community outreach events
Engaging members of the public around environmental sustainability, social responsibility and responsible processes.
Conference and events
Providing practical demonstration areas during internal and external conferences.
As we enter our second year of operation, we’re continuing to test the limits of what the space can offer, broadening our inventory of tools and equipment and working with an expanding network of partners and stakeholders.
