Simulating Mars with Zac Trolley

Canadian Electrical Engineer and Future Mars Settler Zac Trolley joins us on this episode of Quintessential Engineering. He worked as the Crew Engineer on a 2 week Martian Simulation. He was tasked with maintaining the infrastructure of the Habitat and other tasks. He and 5 other researchers spent 2 weeks in isolation living as if they were on the Red Planet. They conducted research on NASA plant growth systems, dust accumulation, material abrasion for space suits, and participated in many outreach activities including recording 360 video for VR applications

Solar Impulse with Paige Kassalen

Solar Impulse 2. It was the plane that did a round-world trip using only the sun as fuel. Utilizing 17,000 solar panels and four lithium-ion batteries, the plane crossed some of the world's largest oceans and visited some of the world's most recognizable landmarks. One of the electrical engineers on the ground crew - responsible for catching the landing plane and the housing of the plane in a mobile hanger - joins us on Quintessential Engineering to talk about being part of one of the most significant projects of engineering and aviation history. We talk to Forbes 30 Under 30 inductee, Paige Kassalen.

Australian Immigration 101 with Sam Hopwood | Sable International

The Australian government has abolished their famous immigration visas that allow a vast array of workers in several industries to migrate to Australia. They have made it tougher for certain professionals to get into Australia, except, for engineers, it seems that immigration may be more accessible than ever before. We talk to Sam Hopwood from global immigration company Sable International about the engineer shortage Australia is facing, and how foreign engineers can forge a path into a lucrative career in one of the greatest corners of the globe.

The future of higher education with The Engineering Institute of Technology

The future of engineering higher education and training is online. So says the Dean of Engineering and the College Manager of a global higher education institution known as the Engineering Institute of Technology. The Engineering Institute of Technology is ready to be the alternative, offering internationally recognized and accredited qualifications. They offer four Bachelors of Science in Engineering programs: BSc in Mechanical, Electrical, Industrial Automation, and Civil and Structural. The institution uses cloud-based laboratories that can be viewed and utilized from across the globe. Live, online, interactive classrooms are a hub of activity where industry-experienced lecturers hold live sessions with students.

The engineers who overwinter in Antarctica

South Africa has a little known South African National Antarctic Programme. The program is run in conjunction with the South African National Space Agency. Every year South African engineers and science professionals descend on Antarctica to assist with Space Weather Research. We talk to an electrical engineer who overwintered at the SANAE IV base in Antarctica.

Biomedical engineering: In-ear EEG devices with Carel Wessels

In-ear EEG devices have become increasingly popular in the later stages of the last decade. Carel Wessels, the top student of Electronic Engineering at the University of Pretoria has now taken on a new challenge. He is designing and developing an in-ear EEG device for his master's studies at Stellenbosch University. He says the device will revolutionize industries such as the truck driving industry and the infant care industry. We find out more.
