11th Annual IEEE Students' Exhibition

Creating a culture of Innovation

It was amazing to see what talent has flourished within our Engineering classrooms yesterday as the curtain came down at the Sarit Expo centre where the Engineering Students' Exhibition was held. Also amazing was the number of ladies who took part this year and actually scooped top prizes.


Sign-to-Speech Translator
This was the winning project by Abdelkareem from University of Khartoum, Sudan, which was a glove designed to record sign language motion and then translate the motion into speech. Although a complete demonstration was not done he took the hearts of both the judges and the public votes.

Solar Panel Efficiency Toolkit
The second best project and I think best presentation was given by John Ruddy Munda, an Engineering Student at the UoN. He has designed a number of devices to minimize power consumption and maximize power captured from Solar Panels using light sensors that detect the best angle of tilt for the panels and move them in turn.
