Over the Summer of 2014 I attended a Summer research program hosted by the
University of Huddersfield
and sponsored by the
Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
It was led by the
and took place over the course of four days.
During the four days I worked in a team of five to design and build a model locomotive to be evaluated by a panel of judges. We designed a poster, presented the model and pitted it against the other teams in a series of mechanical challenges.
In the end we were awarded the Smallpeice Trust Railway award for the best locomotive and presentation.
