Design, from The inside out

The Engineering Curriculum is a complete set of free lessons that allow students to dive into the world of engineering and understand how different fields collaborate to make a technology company, like Dyson, work.

Videos

Meet the engineers

The videos that accompany the Engineering Curriculum include interviews with the Dyson engineers involved in the design of the DC39 vacuum cleaner. Students will learn about the breadth of engineering disciplines, find out the role each engineer has to play, how they got into engineering, and what their role is day to day.

"The Engineering Curriculum is the perfect tool for my students to understand the purpose of design briefs, product analysis and creating specifications."
