Welcome to DESIGN + we are a design-based initiative at Brunel University London that develops and promotes collaboration between business & academia with an emphasis on knowledge Exchange.
Run out of the Brunel Design department, Brunel University’s Product and Industrial Design courses are amongst the highest rated in the UK.
Since 2004, students from these courses have applied their knowledge to the Design-related projects of a wide variety of companies and Organisations including Brompton Bikes, JLR, Hornby and many more.
Commercial projects include working with entrepreneurs on the realisation of radical new ideas, to developing a new product that has later been mass-manufactured for a multi-national corporation.
Our students have worked with hospital trusts and charities to develop new
products and processes. If you have a design challenge, we could help you gain a competitive advantage, or aid the operation of your organisation.
Students work on a variety of real-life design challenges, supported and guided by their supervising tutor. Standards are very high, with intense competition for the
most interesting or exciting collaborative projects.
All potential projects and the intellectual property arrangements will be carefully discussed with you. Throughout their project, students are supported and guided weekly by their supervising tutor.
This is an opportunity not only to access fresh thinking and new ideas, but also to add considerable value to a student’s education and career prospects and supports the next generation.
As working with students has certain time scales see an example of how the undergraduate year works.
