The College of Architecture and Engineering is participating in the ongoing Nairobi Innovation Week (NIW) 2017 which is now running for its 3rd year. The event which started Monday, March 08, 2017 both at the University Towers and the Great Court is expected to come to a close on Friday, March 10, 2017.
In the ongoing NIW, the School of Engineering is showcasing some student projects and most notable is the Remote Controlled Aerial Vehicle (RCAV) for delivery of emergency aid. The RCAV is a type of an aircraft that carries no flight crew or passengers and is consequently controlled either remotely by a trained operator or autonomously by onboard flight computers. The project was developed by Mackenzie Wayne Mosoti and Turab Salim Turab, who are students from the Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering.
From the School of Built Environment, there were several design projects and concepts which included the Dakart table, Heiho coffee table and stool (Enkatani Eh Masaa) My Jewellry Story. The Dakart table which was designed and developed by Hannah Ndungu derives its inspiration from a Moroccan style which is an intricate details and patterns.
The Heiho coffee table designed and developed by Michelle Gitau for the use in an architecture and interior design office lounges or reception area, to be used by designers and clients, whereas the stool (Enkatani Eh Masaa) My Jewellry Story uses multiple patterns and bright colors from the Maasai jewellery patterns on the furniture pieces.
