PROJECTS

Programming and community engagement are at the core of our strategy. We invest heavily in supporting the development of integrated solutions and delivering reliable tools to those who need them most. 

NEPAL WATER PROJECT

This collaboration with Oxfam aims to improve access to clean water using mathematics and problem-solving. Our first project involves improving rural water supply schemes in hilly areas of Nepal, where the high head in the lengths of the pipe will be managed. This is a great opportunity to collaborate with professionals on site, design and implement a solution for a real-world problem.

DRONE SOCIETY PROJECT

In partnership with Oxford Drone Society, the project aims to build a drone that delivers relief items to crisis zones. Members will engage in making a robust drone; from identifying design requirements and flight conditions to the design, build, and testing of different parts of the drone. We are open to the direction this project takes, making it suitable for non-engineering students.

BIODESIGN PROJECT

The biodesign project intends to prototype a new nasogastric tube for patients suffering from small bowel obstruction. The project aims to address a large need in primary healthcare using a needs based approach and students interested in designing for clinical settings and working with clinicians, engineers and researchers are welcome to apply.

YOUTH OUTREACH PROJECT

This programme aims to inspire the next generation of engineers through interactive, hands-on workshops in schools. It exposes students to issues like clean water and electricity shortages, and gives them an opportunity to learn about and build a model of a solution. We offer STEM ambassador training to anyone who is passionate about sharing the importance of engineering to students.
