Waikato professional engineering students are more than just a number, they are part of a unified team guided by a diverse range of thought leaders to solve real-life problems from day one of their degrees.
Robotising the kiwifruit harvesting industry
Canaan, a Masters of Engineering student in robotics, is putting the final touches on his robotic kiwifruit harvesting gripper. Robots have to be careful not to damage the kiwifruit and using an ingenious use of 3D printing, Canaan has developed a gripper with spring like pockets that has solved the problem. He is now a Robotics Engineer at Robotics Plus Ltd.
