Alupod links up with Ulster University


Working in partnership with Intertrade Ireland under the Fusion Programme, Alupod has linked up with Ulster University and Dr. Justin Quinn. The school of engineering, based at Jordanstown, has recently accepted our Alupod product as the flagship final year engineering project.

Approximately 100 students, from a range of engineering degree disciplines, are using the current Alupod design to help them develop a futuristic version of Alupod. Working in teams of five the students will complete 12 weeks and over 1000 hours of effort, per group, to generate a production ready design. Alupod has graciously provided prize money for the best project and the most innovative project.
