Product Design – Dyson Open House Visit

On the 28th of November, Jenny Swanepoel (Head of D&T) and Sam Fry (Y13) attended an Open House at the Dyson headquarters in Malmesbury. 

Dyson have recently started their own university course to fill the skills gap in Engineering.  They employ and train their undergraduate students on site (backed by Warwick university) and if successful, the students have a guaranteed job with Dyson when they graduate.  They also leave debt free as Dyson pays for everything!

 

On arrival we were greeted by James Dyson himself, given a tour of the site and treated to a Michelin Star meal in the Lightning Café.
