Teams that count
Michael Kenward OBE
Dervilla Mitchell CBE FREng, winner of the 2020 Royal Academy of Engineering President’s Medal, has worked on many iconic civil engineering projects.
How I got here
Award-winning young engineers share what they love about engineering and how they became interested in the profession.
Air-breathing rocket engine
A team from Reaction Engines has carried out successful completion of high-temperature tests of a unique precooler system for jet engines.
JCB’s world-first electric digger recently won the Royal Academy of Engineering’s MacRobert Award, which recognises innovation, benefit to society and commercial success.
Hands as machines
Shadow Robot Company’s mechanical Dexterous Hand is being employed to do the jobs that human hands cannot.
Learning code with robots
Richard Hopkins FREng
Engineer Richard Hopkins FREng uses his robotic designs to inspire young people and encourage them to pursue an interest in engineering.
Sustainably transporting gas
Ships carrying liquified natural gas (LNG) must control the pressure of their cargo, as evaporation occurs in the tanks. The ecoSMRT® system captures and reliquefies this ‘boil-off’ gas, significantly reducing emissions.
INNOVATION WATCH - Reducing surgeries for dialysis patients
Pathfinder Medical’s ePATH is helping make surgery for dialysis patients more efficient.
HOW DOES THAT WORK? - MQA
MQA technology allows music listeners to hear exactly what was recorded in the studio.
