W6 trip to B&W

On 8th November the W6 3D design students attended a visit to the Bowers and Wilkins facility in Worthing for a tour of the manufacturing plant and to experience some of the world class acoustic products they produce.  The tour introduced the students to real-life manufacturing techniques and the rigorous quality assurance that ensures such high standards. 

The W6 students were welcomed by the B&W staff who went out of their way to answer all our questions and provide a very unique and valuable experience for the students.  On completion of the tour the students had the opportunity to sit down with the B&W engineers and talk through design ideas for their current project.  The students have been tasked with creating a working MP3 dock and speaker system so it was an extremely useful opportunity to gain some inside knowledge and design expertise.  During the listening session the students were spoilt by the hospitality and the sound quality they experienced.  They enjoyed various tracks and video clips that demonstrated the high end results of the extensive design, testing and manufacturing techniques that are used.

The SRWA 3D design department and W6 would like to extend our thanks to B&W for giving up their valuable time for our students, it was a truly awe inspiring visit which demonstrated perfectly how products are created and highlighted many potential careers paths available to them.
