At any one time over half a million people are flying far above our heads in modern aircraft. Their lives depend on the performance of the special metals used inside jet engines, where temperatures can reach over 2000˚C. Cambridge researchers will be exhibiting these remarkable materials at this year’s Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition.
From the kaleidoscopic swirl of a neural network, to ribbons of crystals unfolding like sheets of wrapping paper, to the relief on the faces of villagers in Malawi after their local well was repaired, the breadth of engineering research at the University of Cambridge is reflected in the images produced by the winners of this year’s Department of Engineering photo competition.
New resources designed to inspire the next generation of engineers by bringing authentic engineering challenges into the classroom have been launched today by the University of Cambridge.
Goats, game show hosts, eyeballs and pirates are going to help the next generation of engineers win places at leading universities, thanks to a new website launched today by the University of Cambridge Department of Engineering in partnership with The Underwood Trust.
From rainbow coloured liquid-crystal molecules, to tunnels deep under the ground, this year’s entries from the University of Cambridge Department of Engineering photo competition help to bring engineering brightly and vividly to life.
