Review quote

'...a unique opportunity for students to see the nuts and bolts of how communication really works in organisations that use team working and integrated systems design. A fly-on-the-wall documentary that will resonate with practising engineers and educate those in universities and procurement agencies. This should be recommended reading for professional studies and PDP-related modules.' - Frank Hamer, Programmes Director (Electronics & Communications), SoCCE, University of Plymouth
