Each year the Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship opens it’s doors for an end of year celebration and showcase of student work. The showcase is an opportunity for students to share and discuss work with the Centre’s partners from across academia and industry and for our partners to get a behind-the-scenes look at what’s
ahead for the coming years. First-year students showcased a citizen science project and an innovation brief focused on improving the transportation in Bristol. We have definitely enjoyed it. We were given a brief on how to improve and aspect of transport in Bristol, we looked at buses from Stoke Bishop there are currently 1.7 million bus journeys per
year taken, that could definitely be changed. We wanted people to start cycling and walking so we came up with a scheme that did that. Second-year students showcased case studies on historical technology transformations and their work with client projects. It has been really exciting. It’s been good fun. It makes you feel as though your actual ideas are sort of more useful…more valid and they can be used in the real world. You feel as though all the briefs in first year were really great but if you do them to an actual client then
you sort of have a purpose… and you are learning through experience, that was really good. Master’s students showcased client projects with Bristol Zoo and the Environment Agency.
