Students launch bespoke design amplifier business

Sense Audio

23rd January 2015

Creative Aston students have developed a bespoke amplifier design business as part of their Placement year.

Engineering undergraduates, Nitesh Sharma, Tobias Williams and Manjinder Singh have launched Sense Audio which brings their engineering knowledge to the business world.

The team’s business works by transforming every day and ordinary objects into audio amplifiers, ranging from retro multi-meters to drain pipes.

They have also been running engineering workshops to students from Aston University Engineering Academy to pass on their engineering knowledge and experiences. The creative workshops encourage young and aspiring students to become the inventors of tomorrow, carefully organised to provide an insight into the engineering world. They are also working closely and networking with teachers through Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Network (STEMnet) to promote their work to a younger audience.

Sense Audio will be launching their website in January 2015 where their products will be available for purchase online and hope to continue the business as a placement opportunity in engineering for students in the future.

Nitesh, co-founder of Sense Audio, said: “One of the highlights so far for Sense Audio is gaining exposure and building our reputation which in itself is a fantastic achievement for us as young students starting a business in our placement year. Sense Audio is not engineering specific, allowing us as a team to grow, learn and adapt new skills.” 

Message from the team: The Sense Audio team strive to offer the very best experience which is why our young, professional yet enthusiastic team are available every step of the way.

The team have been supported in their venture by the BSEEN programme. This is an innovative scheme offering an attractive package of intensive start up support to for new ventures.  The scheme led by Aston University is part-financed by the West Midlands European Regional Development Fund, and a collaborative initiative between Aston University, University of Birmingham and Birmingham City University.
