THE MORSON MAKER SPACE AND ENGINE ROOM
Enabling students to learn real-world industry skills.
The Morson Maker Space is located on the University of Salford campus and features 3D printers, Ultimate S5, 3 and 2+ machines, Markforged composite and SLA resin Formlabs printers as well as laser and vinyl cutters, and a dedicated computer suite for 3D design classes. Students have the ability to learn how to use and operate these machines to build practical skills in relation to design for manufacture, assembly and inspection, gaining hands-on practical experience to take a project from idea to early concept stage right through to a final product.
The Morson Engine Room supports collaboration between students and businesses by allowing education and industry to work together on industry briefs. Featuring the latest manufacturing technologies, which include a waterjet cutter, metal additive manufacturing, large format 3D printing, electron and optical microscopes, and reverse engineering metrology instrumentation, it enables students to learn real-world industry skills.
“This is a flagship for Salford, for attracting the next generation of engineers and enabling industry to recruit from our talent pool. It is exciting to be working alongside Morson Group to build on our manufacturing pedigree, which gave birth to the first engineering courses dating back to the Industrial Revolution!”
Dr Maria Stukoff | Maker Space director at the University of Salford
