Student visit

Two groups of students along with their tutors from Nottingham Trent University visited Tibshelf on 26th January. The visit was arranged to assist in the students’ manufacturing knowledge as part of their BSc Product Design and Computer Aided Product Design courses.
In addition to a plant tour they were given a technical presentation.

Working with Sapa, the University have set the students an assignment to design products using aluminium extrusion. Their brief requires that commercial and technical viability is considered as well as environmental impact and lifecycle thinking. The best design will receive recognition from Sapa and the offer of a place on a forthcoming ProfileAcademy.
