MatOrtho® Inspires Young Engineers

Student Visit Headstart July 2015

MatOrtho Ltd was delighted to recently host a visit of 40 Year 12 students with an interest in engineering. The students came from various schools across the UK, from Somerset to Edinburgh, with one even travelling all the way from Madrid!
The visit was split over two days with 20 students on each day, and was organised between the Queen Mary University of London and the Engineering Development Trust (EDT), a charitable organisation aimed at promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects.


Each day began with presentations on MatOrtho®'s history, product portfolio and the surgical conditions that we treat, principally arthritis. A factory tour then included demonstrations of the titanium and nylon Additive Layer Manufacturing machines and the production areas. Feedback from the students was very positive; ‘The highlight was the 3D printing,’ recalls student Joy Ijeoma Echefu, and ‘hands on, interaction with the products provided a better understanding’. Research and Development Director Simon Collins remarks: ‘We are pleased to play our part in generating interest in the challenging but rewarding career of engineering. Thanks to everyone involved in hosting this visit.’
