The research engineer is to support an ongoing collaborative project with DSO,
titled “Unmanned Aeriel Deployment Techniques for Sensors”.
The research engineer will be responsible for a sub-project focusing on
researching and developing an effective technique to encapsulate UV curable
resin; the research scope includes literature review, design and perform
experiments on encapsulation techniques, characterized the controlled release
of the UV resin, and at a later stage work closely with other sub-task members
to integrate the method into the unmanned aeriel vehicle.
Description of the research project:
The is a multi-disciplinary project under which a specific research task seeks
to research and develop an encapsulation material and processes to encapsulate
light sensitive resin (precursors to polymers). The research scope includes
literature review, develop experimental strategies to achieve protection of UV
resin against pre-mature curing yet capable of trigger release of the resin,
perform characterization and writing technical report and manuscript. At a
later stage of the project, the developed method will be integrated with a
robotic model to demonstrate the controlled release of the resin.
Preferred technical background: B.Sc or B.Eng or M.Sc or M.Eng, material
science and engineering with hands-on experience and or interest to acquire
skills in material design and 3D printing processes. The candidate is also
expected to collaborate with the project team for the integration of various
sub-tasks of the overall project.
