The benefits in utilising HIVE can be wide and varied. For
instance, a researcher (staff or student) may foster a relationship
with another school or faculty and begin a collaborative venture,
exploring a potentially new area of research. HIVE is especially
keen to nurture projects with collaborative and
multi-disciplinary components, so please request our support in
this area should you wish it.
An undergraduate or postgraduate student may embark upon a
dissertation project which will give them hands on experience of
working with visualization technologies; potentially vital for
their CV and career prospects.
Schools, colleges or the general community may benefit from HIVE
by exploring how to use the technology to raise aspirations or
communicate an idea. Various programmes have been designed by
schools in close consultation with HIVE, exploring how to support
the learning of GCSE Design Technology and primary level maths.
Companies may use the facility with the potential aim of
establishing how modification of their processes may lead to cost
savings; for example by employing virtual prototyping or
collaborative design reviews.
