The £300,000 hub will offer students access to expert design staff, a powder-based 3D Systems ZPrinter Z650 machine and a plastic photopolymer-based ZBuilder Ultra, as well as associated consumables and two BFB3000 rapid prototyping colour printers housed in a newly refurbished lab.

This sounds like a brilliant investment that will no doubt help economically in the least. Here in the United States, there is not as much stress on engineering or "engineering design". I feel like we seem to lean towards the business administration rather than engineering and innovation.
