Daniel Ung, Masters student at ICRAR-Curtin University, has won an international engineering competition for use of the electromagnetic solving software package FEKO.
Daniel solved an engineering problem using Altair‘s software to help the Murchison Widefield Array team.
Daniel’s project won out against entries from Germany, the USA and India to take out the top prize. Titled Embedded Element Pattern Beam Model for Murchison Widefield Array, his project simulated the beam pattern of the Murchison Widefield Array for use by astronomers.
Daniel completed his undergraduate degree with honours at Curtin University and completed a Summer Studentship with ICRAR during his studies. Daniel is now an assistant with our engineering lab and enrolled masters student, continuing his work under the supervision of ICRAR Engineer Dr Adrian Sutinjo. Dr Sutinjo will also win this year’s supervisor award for his role in Daniel’s work.
Congratulations Daniel and Adrian!
