I’m an Engineer, get me out of here! is back with the Metre Zone, running in Science Week!

Between 9th–20th November the five engineers in this general engineering zone will be competing for the school students’ votes in fast-paced live chats and answering questions on everything from robots, to coding, to sewers systems, to medical microwaves.

For the latest news and announcements about the event, find us on Twitter, @IAEGMOOH, and follow the hashtag, #IAEIE.

Let’s meet the engineers, and the schools who’ll be measuring them up in…

The Engineers

Alex Jaeger | Bioelectromagnetics Group, UCC

I help build robotic tubes to investigate the inside of peoples’ lungs.

I use microwave signals to diagnose and treat diseases, such as cancer and stroke.

I work in Africa trying to improve access to toilets and subsequently treating the waste from them in the city of Blantyre, Malawi – can you imagine if we didn’t have toilets?
