We have plenty of engineering outreach projects that you can get involved in while studying here.

Engineers Without Borders

Every year, we compete with universities from across the globe, to design and build a single-seat racing car. Our team is made up of engineering students from all disciplines, from first year undergraduates to PhD students.

Mothers of Africa

Student outreach

Mothers of Africa is a Medical Educational Charity that trains medical staff in Sub-Saharan Africa to care for mothers during pregnancy and childbirth.

Our students support a project at a remote medical outpost in Shiyala Village, situated in the Chongwe District in Zambia.

Over the past years, we have:

  • Designed and installed a solar classroom
  • Provided lighting and power to the remaining buildings in the medical outpost complex
  • Installed an energy data logger to gather information on how the solar energy is being used.
