How engineering is helping Joshua take his business forward

Final year Aeronautical Engineering BEng(Hons) student Joshua Gere tells us why he chose Brighton and how he is taking forward his business idea with his company DroneAvion.com

The open day definitely made me choose Brighton. I went to a few different ones then came here. It was more than a regular open day, the lecturers really gave us their time. It showed how supportive lecturers are here and how approachable they are for students.

At the open day I spent a lot of time talking to Dr Daniel Coren about what I wanted to do. He could see how passionate I am about the subject, was really interested in my business idea, and gave me some good insight into life at Brighton. I knew I wanted to come here and went home and cancelled all my other university applications.

Lecturers go the extra mile to assist you. Like anything in life, as long as you are trying something, if you ask for help they can guide you with their expertise and technical knowledge. They can help you find ways to expand your ideas and see things differently to help you achieve what you want to achieve. Read More

Engineering and teaching excellence on film

The University’s £14m Advanced Engineering Building in Moulsecoomb, Brighton, has been captured in a new Youtube video produced by Coast to Capital which helped make the building a reality.

The business-led partnerships between local authorities and businesses plays a central role in determining local economic priorities and undertaking activities to drive economic growth and the creation of local jobs.

The Coast to Capital team spent the day with Professor Rob Morgan, Professor of Thermal Propulsion Systems in the Advanced Engineering Centre (AEC), based in the building.

The AEC is an internationally-recognised centre of research excellence with an established track record of pioneering research in applied thermofluids, including automotive engineering, heat transfer, sprays and two phase flows.

It works with global academics, industry leaders and policymakers to significantly impact the transportation, aerospace and medical sectors.
