Dyson to fund engineering professorship at Cambridge University

Wiltshire based manufacturer Dyson has pledged £1.4million to the University of Cambridge to fund a professor of fluid mechanics.

The newly appointed professor will focus teaching and research on the science and engineering of air movement. The £1.4m donation will fund the professorship for 10 years.

Sir James Dyson said: "Britain needs bright ideas. We need more British students to take on research projects at British universities - we are struggling to fulfil our engineering needs.

"Forging working relationships with universities will help us solve our engineering challenges and continue to export the best technology."
