Abstract

An investigation into how universities deliver Design and Make activities to engineering students has been undertaken, by paying particular attention to the design brief and the extent to which students manufacture their own designs. Developing practical skills is a requirement for accredited degree courses, however, developing such skills requires machine tools, time and workshop space. Two types of design brief have been identified between the University of Bath and six other universities. The organization of the Make is shown to vary in location, duration and timing, therefore, yielding different levels of impact on the teaching timetable.
