Ingenuity highlights tomorrow's tech leaders

Tuesday, 20 October 2015

The men and women who will shape Australia’s technical innovation of the future will showcase their work at a free public event at the Adelaide Convention Centre next week.

Ingenuity 2015 – open to the public on Tuesday 27 October – is an interactive expo of hundreds of final-year projects by the University of Adelaide’s highly talented engineering, computer and mathematical sciences students.

From mobile devices that detect daily stress, to taking 3D printers to the next level by “printing” biodegradable items, these are just some of the more than 250 fascinating projects that will go on display.

"Ingenuity 2015 is our opportunity to demonstrate just how talented and creative our students can be while solving unique technical challenges,” says Professor John Beynon, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences.

"Their final-year projects offer students the chance to shine across a wide range of fields, such as health, humanitarian work, sustainability and security.

“This is an exciting time for our students, and we’re very proud to be sharing their achievements with the community, including school groups and members of industry.”

The University of Adelaide solar car, currently competing in the World Solar Challenge from Darwin to Adelaide, will also be showcased at Ingenuity 2015.
