CEC Systems & UNSW continue collaboration in 2016

CEC Systems will be continuing their successful collaboration with the University of New South Wales’ (UNSW) School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering in 2016.

2016 marks the third year of collaboration between CEC Systems and UNSW. In this time, CEC Systems and Engineering students have engaged in significant research and developed a range of conceptual solutions to defined real-world problems.

CEC Systems CEO, Nicholas Press, believes the relationship is a natural symbiosis “We share the same goal of developing innovative conceptual solutions to industry challenges”.

From refrigeration systems to alternate air flow flooring, students research the causes of these complex challenges and create unique solutions. For example, a group of 2015 students developed an alternate design for a system that could automate the collapsing of containers.

Dr Qing Nian Chan (Shaun), a Senior Lecturer at the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering and the Supervisor for this collaboration explained “At UNSW, we embed innovation and entrepreneurship into our research and education culture.  We champion and promote the fostering of deep, mutually beneficial relationships and knowledge exchange between University and the industry. Our collaboration with CEC Systems is a prime example of such successful engagement.”

Both CEC Systems and UNSW School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering are excited about the innovations their collaboration will bring in the future. And if their previous years working together are anything to go by, they deserve to be.
