Experience Engineering (E²) 2018

Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts, University of Waikato, Hamilton

15th Oct 2018 9:00am - 17th Oct 2018 2:30pm

Experience Engineering (E²) was an event aimed at year 11 and 12 students. It ran alongside the Oji Fibre Solutions Engineering Design Show (EDS): an annual event that presents the work of our Year 1-4 University of Waikato Engineering students, with prizes awarded for outstanding research and design.

The day will began with students participating in a selection of interactive engineering design activities. Participants battled it out in civil engineering with ‘towers and trebuchets’; built their own electric cars in mechanical engineering; sorted lollies in materials and process engineering and explored virtual reality with software engineering. Bryant Hall and Student Village then put on a ‘taster’ of the Halls of Residence by providing a catered lunch. The remaining time allowed students to view the rest of the Engineering Design Show and talk with our Engineering undergraduate students about their work and experiences at the University of Waikato.
