You would have read or heard about it or even seen a real one! Yes, we are talking drones or UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), a topic which is very much in the news nowadays. We were pleased, as part of our regular Lee Wee Nam Library lunch time talk series, to have Professor Rajkumar Pant, MAE Visiting Professor from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, to deliver a talk titled: “To Drone or Not To Drone” at Lee Wee Nam Library on 30th March 2016. The talk was not just of interest to aerospace engineering students & researchers but also people from other engineering disciplines as well as those with non-engineering background. There were more than 50 present on the day of the talk. Interest on this topic was strong, judging by the number of questions fielded to Prof Rajkumar by the participants after his talk. The talk also included a live-demo of a nano-drone by a licensed drone pilot – click here for the short demo video. See more photos of the event here.
NTU Libraries first Introduction to 3D printing workshop held on 13 January 2016 was attended by nineteen NTU engineering undergraduate and postgraduate students. The course instructor was also a Phd student from NTU’s School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Vivek Manohar. After attending the one hour hands-on session at Lee Wee Nam Library seminar room, participants took a brief tour of the 3D printing services available at Campus Supplies.

Good news – the EID exhibition is back again at Lee Wee Nam Library exhibition area! Last year Engineering Library worked with the School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE) to showcase, for the first time, student works for their EID (Engineering, Innovation & Design) programme at LWNL. This year we have more of these interesting projects like phone power bank charger kiosk, wet shoe drier, rain proof window and bus door umbrella (Cover U). The exhibition ends on 31 August and to-date feedback received have been very encouraging so don’t miss viewing these interesting exhibits by our students.
MAE’s EID was first held in 1999. The number of students involved this year was 480 in 61 teams with an average team size of 8. Students are required to write a business plan, understand the importance of protecting intellectual property (IP) and more. Students are also required to focus on technopreneurship areas such as financing, marketing and project management.
