Naf Selmani was announced as the winner of the Structure and Transport category as well as the competition’s overall winner for ‘The Hive’

Earlier this year, the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) launched its International Engineering Photography Competition, which invited keen photographers of all ages to enter and showcase the ingenuity, breadth and vibrancy of the world of engineering.

The IET received over 500 photos from children, young people and adults across the world, who submitted photos to five categories: Digital; Environment and Energy; Structures and Transport; Robotics, and Design and Production.

“We launched our photography competition to help banish the outdated perception that engineers just fix and mend things. We received some brilliant images and I’d like to congratulate our winners,” said IET president Nick Winser.

HP is taking on Microsoft in the detachable PC sector with the HP ZBook x2, a new CAD-optimised mobile workstation that it claims offers up to 73% more 3D performance than the Microsoft Surface Pro thanks to an integrated Nvidia Quadro GPU.

The HP ZBook x2 features a 14-inch 4K multi-touch display, a detachable Bluetooth keyboard and a pressure sensitive pen, based on Wacom EMR technology.

The machine can be used in two main modes – tablet mode (with keyboard completely removed) or in laptop mode, where the screen rests upright on a built-in stand.
