The engineer's story
We challenged young engineers to use IT to illustrate the ideas and concepts behind a piece of engineering design, or a novel application of computer software, or even a software development project.
NCE thanks its fellows sponsors: Ove Arup, Architects' Journal, Autodesk, Excitech Computers, Anders Glaser Wills, Amec Design & Management, Jasprint

Darren Woolf, Ove Arup
The Igloo (montage using Star-CD)
Woolf's winning entry tackles the issues around creating a sustainable and comfortable working and/or living environment. His panel illustrates how an igloo efficiently deals with external influences on the internal environment by balancing carbon dioxide with oxygen levels and heat exchange.
Woolf wins £500, plus Autodesk software.
Daniel Bosia,Ove Arup
Space Structure Design (presentation using AutoCAD, Rhinoceros, 3D Studio, Lucas,Oasys GSA)
This presentation demonstrates how different computer packages can be used in the parametric design of buildings.
Bosia wins Autodesk software.
Tim Lucas, Price & Myers
Building the Dublin Millennium Bridge (presentation using AutoCAD r14 and Studio Pro)
Lucas's entry is a short film showing how the prefabricated structure willfit together on site this autumn. The 3D construction model is used to generate working drawings.
