Elective Projects 2014-15

Wednesday saw the launch of this year’s elective projects at the Birmingham Midland Institute – in a rather grander room than what we are used to. We are pleased to say that the range of projects are incredibly diverse and more focused on research activities, as opposed to conventional design tasks. Hopefully there will be scope for several of the projects to overlap and merge to create new collaborations in the near future. The full list is as follows:
