University of Waikato Engineering Design Show 2016


The School of Engineering at the University of Waikato held its annual Engineering Design Show on the 17/19Th October again this year. At this capstone event, attended by invited guests from near and far, over one hundred undergraduate engineering students presented their design and research projects in the atmosphere of an international multi-session professional conference and exhibition.

Over the three day event, presentations were given and exhibitions displayed from a diverse range of engineering fields including Chemical and Biological engineering, Materials and Process engineering, Software engineering, Electronics engineering and Mechanical engineering. From automated apple picking machines and formula SAE racing cars to state of the art electronic animal monitoring systems, the range of talent and innovative design on show was impressive and heralds well for the future of engineering in New Zealand. Combined with the Waikato and Bay of Plenty branch meeting of the Institute of Professional Engineers New Zealand (IPENZ), the Show was an outstanding success once more. Prizes were awarded to the best on show including the following:
