Take a look at some of the positions achievable and innovative projects being completed through the study of all things STEM.

Emily has joined the Mechanical Engineering team as a graduate since recently completing her degree in Biomedical Engineering with Honours at Flinders University. Throughout her degree, Emily completed a placement where she assisted in the design and development of orthopaedic implants. With a strong interest in biomechanics, Emily’s honours project led her onto the mechanical pathway. She designed a device to repeat the function of the sacroiliac joints in the human body, which will help researchers determine the effects of prolonged sitting and standing postures on the Human spine. In her final year of study, Emily participated in a 3-week summer school internship in France, using sensors in a flight simulator to measure cognitive loading.
Mobile X-ray machines
Micro-X Rover with carbon nanotube technology
The Micro-X Rover, a mobile x-ray machine was first designed for the Australian military as an ultra-mobile battlefield-ready x-ray machine delivering the full spectrum of imaging solutions. It has now been adapted to be used by vets, using custom software tailored for small animal exams. Rover’s five-kilogram battery can operate for all day long before recharge and the machine uses modern material science to improve weight and performance, such as x-ray shielding using a tungsten filled polymer instead of lead, and a carbon fibre monocoque chassis.
