Written by Morgan Dolfing:

“On 2nd December, I was invited to present at the G T Murray Awards for Engineering New Zealand. George Thomas Murray was a notable New Zealander civil engineer who made a significant contribution to engineering in New Zealand and across the world around the late 19th and early 20th century. In his name, Engineering NZ hosts a yearly event where top students from across Auckland’s engineering schools come together to present projects they have undertaken to the professional body.

I had the privilege to present mine and Julian Sundheim’s Part IV Project on developing edible cell microcarriers for the scaleup of cultured meat (supervised by Dr Laura Domigan). We were lucky enough to engage in a unique and topical project, and it was a pleasure to introduce a new audience to our novel work.

It was also a pleasure to see the work put in by the students from other institutions. The project of the ultimate winner – Sabrina Naseem from AUT – was particularly inspiring. She described a project wherein the challenge was designing a new student accommodation for AUT, and the depth to which she considered all the different dimensions of hauora (wellbeing) for the end users was a real eye-opener!”
