Over the last year, teams of three or four Manufacturing Engineering Tripos (MET) students have completed a major design project to develop a new product, with real business potential. Having first identified a customer need, they have researched the market, developed original design concepts and created a full business plan. The projects have generated some exciting new ideas and innovative technology.
