Dominion Electronics has invested in the engineers of tomorrow by backing Queensland University of Technology’s (QUT) third and final year student prizes. The former is open to teams or individuals with the best result in advanced design projects using Rabbit Semiconductor products, while the final year prize is awarded for the best Rabbit Semiconductor based thesis.
The third year winners are Jamie Rea, Sharif El-Zalabany and Michael Snape.
Tertius Van Der Walt took the final year prize—$1200, a Rabbit application kit plus an embedded technology reference book—for his thesis based on the intranet supervisory controller for a telescope at the Nanango QUT Observatory.
QUT students undertake projects built around the Rabbit Semiconductor Core Modules supplied by the company.
“[The core modules are] great for learning embedded systems programming,” says associate professor Dr Vinod Chandran.
