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.
Built by undergraduates working for their exams, with funds raised by the students themselves, Cambridge’s solar car is the only British entry into the World Solar Challenge. Despite the odds, however, its radical design could still secure victory.
