The Faculty of Engineering & Technology at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) is holding their Annual Product Design Show on the evening of the 26th May, starting at 4:00pm and will be co-hosted with the SolidWorks User Group (NW).

The theme this year is employability and work experience through placements and the event will host guests from over 70 companies in the design to manufacture sector.

The event will also allow visitors the opportunity to talk face to face and discuss technical issues with the experts and develop solutions.
