Innovation – Design – Technology

Zeyu Liu

4th Year Mechanical Engineering Student at the University of Calgary

I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to present my engineering projects on the world stage since age 14. Over the years, my passion for science and technology has transformed into a strong desire to create real meaningful products and make positive impacts to society.
My projects involve mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science, focused on novel technology, clean energy, and sustainability.
