Students exhibit engineering future
Final-year Mechanical Engineering students will showcase their knowledge, skills and creativity as part of the School's annual Project Exhibition, being held at Union Hall on Friday, October 21 from 10am to 5pm.
Organiser Mr Antoni Blazewicz said that by displaying their projects in the exhibition, students have the opportunity of direct contact with industry representatives, providing valuable experience and future contacts.
"For the last few years the exhibition, held in the Engineering South building, had a very good attendance," he said.
"This year we hope it will be even more popular as, mainly due to increased number of projects, we are moving to a new venue, the Union building. This has easier access for the general public, more room, and all of the projects displayed on one floor."
Some of this year's projects include a self-balancing scooter, a robotic ping-pong player, and the Formula SAE racing car.
"There are also a number of projects dealing with such important issues as alternative sources of energy and user-friendly equipment for disabled people," Mr Blazewicz said.
