UVic Engineering Students win First Place in Innovative Design at Canadian Engineering Competition.

At the recent Canadian Engineering Competition in Waterloo, Ontario, four University of Victoria Engineering students won First Place in the Innovative Design category. Brian Claus ( Electrical), Peter Crocker ( Mechanical), Toren Gustafson ( Mechanical) and David Shea ( Electrical) created a new type of thruster for small underwater vehicles. Their design meets an enormous demand in the underwater vehicle market due to its low-cost, high efficiency and low maintenance requirement. This is the second consecutive year that UVic engineering students have placed first in the Innovative Design category.

Earlier this year, their project has won the Wighton Engineering Product Development Fund Award, making the prototyping of their winning design easier. Peter and Toren are also carrying out their design and prototyping work in this term as a MECH 499 project.
