Ben Irwin

Design in my opinion is all about making other people’s lives better. Although I would lean towards the engineering side of design, I would like to think that I have a creative side to tackle any problem head on and in a logical manner. Having little experience in medical product design I wanted to challenge myself with a technical yet ergonomic challenge with my major project. As well as design, I have an interest in sport and music, which have inspired other projects throughout my university career and allowed me to be a part of some life changing opportunities. | benirwin-designengineer
