Love is in the air at Middlesex University this Valentine's Day
Students are feeling the love at Middlesex University after three graduates installed a giant heart on campus in time for Valentine’s Day.
Product Design and Engineering graduates created the three-metre high heart for the I Heart Middlesex campaign, which encouraged people to share their reasons for loving the university.
The design team used more than 7,000 individual LEDs and hundreds of custom-designed circuit boards to make the eye-catching feature.
Lead designer Sid Odedra, 31, of Barnet said: “The university asked us to come up with something special to create a buzz amongst students and so far the reaction has been amazing.
"We had a number of weeks to plan the project but needed to assemble it over one weekend so put in a couple of all-night sessions to make sure everything was working perfectly. Everyone is delighted with the results.”
