Unmanned Systems Technology Captivated Educators at ASEE's Global Colloquium

Is the new generation of engineers trained to solve grand challenges and advance innovation? As both a supplier to the academic community and employer of newly minted engineers, Quanser demonstrated at the ASEE Global Colloquium in Singapore how cutting-edge, industry-relevant technology can influence engineering education and help nurture students into highly intuitive engineers.

The workshop titled "Innovative Tools for Preparing Effective Global Engineers" attracted many conference delegates. They had a unique opportunity to experience a live demo of Quanser's Unmanned Vehicle Systems Lab - an example of innovative technology already being utilized by Concordia University, Canada; Louisiana Tech University, USA and University of Regina, Canada.

The delegates also had a chance to win an iPad. The lucky winner is Mr. Yeo Chor Lee from the Ngee Ann Polytechnic in Singapore. Congratulations!

Cameron Fulford, one of Quanser's Engineering Managers explains the benefits of this indoor Unmanned Vehicle Systems Lab that he helped to develop.

The Qball, Quanser's unmanned aerial vehicle was demonstrated in flight at the workshop. Delegates could take a closer look at the device on display at Quanser's table.
