What do you think makes engineering fun? Here is my list for starters please add your suggestions.
- Competition (i.e motor racing, robot wars, scrapheap challenge, ...)
- Making a difference to the world (mobile phones, dialysis machines, sustainable energy systems, ...)
- Teamwork (multidisciplinaryi.e. electrical, electronic, mechanical and software engineering combined)
-Things that move (robots, cars, bikes, machine tools,.....)
It doesn't sound too difficult does it. Here is a list of projects that I think matches with most of that and could be done as group projects for undergraduate engineers.
Build a robot to search for survivors in collapsed buildings. (robocup rescue competition)
Build a team of robots to play football (any number of different FIRA or robocup leagues to enter)
Build a formula student race car
Build an electric bike to race at the Isle of Man TT
