Female students visit Factory 2050

Women in Engineering students were “blown away” by the advanced technology they saw in action during a visit to Factory 2050 at the University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC).

Female engineering students from the University of Sheffield visited the collaborative research facility, which is home to the AMRC’s Integrated Manufacturing Group (IMG).
The students – members of the university’s Women in Engineering Student Society – witnessed first-hand some of the research and innovation projects being conducted by the group into reconfigurable robotics, digitally assisted assembly and machining technologies.
The visit was organised by Serena Linley, the society’s former secretary, to give members
a glimpse into how the technologies they had been learning about were being used to drive innovation and overcome manufacturing solutions for companies.
