Convener: Tony Wheeler

Maximum 30

Technology is part of our everyday life and engineering advances
continue to facilitate improvements for us in many ways. This Group will
look behind engineering and technology projects in the news to better
understand how they work and the challenges faced in implementing
them. At each meeting a member or invited guest speaker with
appropriate professional knowledge or experience will give a 1 hour talk
on a particular project which will be followed by a 30 minute group
discussion. In practise discussions have widened out to include not only
technical but socio- economic issues. We will consider a wide range of
technologies and topics for each meeting are agreed by the Group in
advance. Group members are also encouraged to suggest topics for
future meetings but need not feel obliged to make a presentation
themselves. The provisional list of topic options for selection from this
term is given below although events in the meantime may encourage us
to consider alternatives.

  • Biomedical engineering ( prosthetics and artificial internal body

replacement parts),

  • Wind turbines for power generation,
  • Electronics display technologies ( for computer, phone,airport,railway

station, and public information applications)

  • Avionics,
  • Tunnelling techniques
  • Computer printer technologies and
  • GPS and other satellite- based positioning systems.
