Airmaster recently provided guidance and equipment to students at the Australian National University who are participants of the TechLauncher initiative program.
A group of ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science students recently visited Airmaster’s ACT branch to learn more about building control and monitoring systems, and to take receipt of a Controller donated by Airmaster to help with their project.
As part of the TechLauncher program, the students are attempting to build a software platform and remote management system that can communicate with disparate building control and monitoring systems (communications, energy, lifts, fire services, HVAC, lighting, security and plumbing).
TechLauncher is an ANU initiative which enables students from any discipline to develop the research and professional skills required to use technology to bring great ideas to life and have a positive impact on our society.
These skills include communication and stakeholder management, critical thinking, design, teamwork (including multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural and distributed teamwork), time management and many other generic skills required by employers in industry and government as well as by the research community.
Students develop these skills by working within a context that is much broader than the ANU. They work closely with industry professionals, technology experts and entrepreneurs across the ACT to complete projects addressing complex problems in a variety of disciplines and industries, or to create their own start-up enterprises. It is this context and breadth of involvement that provides our students with a deeply engaged and effective learning environment.
ANU students studying any degree in any discipline can participate in TechLauncher.
