CEMAST Students Showcase Outstanding Work at Presentation Evening
Last night, Level 3 Engineering students showcased their final projects to potential employers, prospective CEMAST students, and their parents at the annual Presentation Evening.
Students from Manufacturing, Automotive, Aeronautical and Marine disciplines all dressed up in their finest business attire to display the fascinating projects they’ve been working on over the past months.
With projects ranging from a Progressive Brake Light System and an Improved Taper Process, to Push-Bike Indicators, a Drone and 3D Printed Time Capsules, the visitors were all very impressed with the outstanding work produced by the students. The projects were innovative and visually impressive, but many also offered the chance for guests to test out and get a hands-on experience.
Head of Engineering, Paul Brimecombe, said: “We always enjoy the chance to showcase our students’ fantastic work here at CEMAST to employers. The innovation shown by our students this year has been truly inspiring. With a combination of hard work, teamwork, and perseverance, their great ideas have been brought to life and we’re all very proud of the results.”
Level 3 Mechanical Engineering student, Scott Heelas, said: “Fareham Council approached us about the Time Capsule idea and I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to run with the project. I researched, designed and created prototypes to fit the specifications Fareham Council gave. I experimented with a couple of different options and eventually came up with the winning concept.
The facilities and support at CEMAST have helped me create a fantastic project I’m proud of. My project was based on 3D printing, which is a relatively new technology. We’re lucky at CEMAST to have the newest ‘Ultimaker 3’ printer which is an excellent piece of equipment.
I liaised with local primary schools, Park Gate and Sarisbury, as well as the Art and Design department at Fareham College, and Fareham Council themselves. We created the time capsules to a shape that would fit the items the schools wanted to include, as well as ensuring the material used wasn’t corrosive and would stand the test of time.”
