The university's final year students were tasked with bringing to life research designs that will be tested in line with the requirements for their qualifications. 

Dean of the Engineering Department, Professor Glen Bright says the inventions had to impact the community in some way. 

"The devices have to be tested and need to operate in order for the students to pass the module and graduate as engineers. We focus on functionality and innovation. We look at what the community needs and we try to provide equipment researched and designed for communities," Bright said.
