Cambridge’s new Engineering Centre

The Dyson Engineering Design Centre at Cambridge Uni’s Department of Engineering is funded by the James Dyson Foundation

The new Design Centre, due to open in 2015, will be created through the remodelling of an existing workshop (pictured), and will provide flexible, open-plan space capable of accommodating a variety of practical design and workshop-based undergraduate activities. 

Sir James Dyson said: ‘I’m hopeful that this new space for Britain’s best engineers at the University of Cambridge will catalyse great technological breakthroughs that transform how we live.’ 

Dame Ann Dowling, head of the department of engineering, University of Cambridge, said: ‘Academic rigour must meet with practical invention. These buildings will bridge the gap, encouraging engineers to apply their minds to creatively experiment and try new things.’
