Airbus UK is a wholly owned subsidiary of Airbus which produces wings for Airbus aircraft. When Airbus was incorporated as a joint-stock company in 2001, BAE Systems transferred its UK Airbus facilities in return for a 20% share of the new company. These facilities became Airbus UK. The company has two main sites responsible for the design and manufacture of the high-technology wings for all Airbus models as well as overall design and supply of the fuel system. For most Airbus models, the company is responsible for overall design and supply of landing gear. The company employs around 13,000 people at two sites: Filton, where the engineering and design activity takes place along with some manufacturing, and Broughton, where other major wing component manufacturing and all wing assembly takes place.BuroHappold Engineering

Caenagnathoidea ("recent jaw forms") is a group of advanced oviraptorosaurian dinosaurs from the Cretaceous Period of what are now Asia and North America. They are distinct for their characteristically short, beaked, parrot-like skulls, often with bony crests atop the head. They ranged in size from Caudipteryx, which was the size of a turkey, to the 8 meter long, 1.4 ton Gigantoraptor. The group (along with all maniraptoran dinosaurs) is close to the ancestry of birds. The most complete specimens have been found in Asia, representing members of the sub-group Oviraptorinae. Notable but fragmentary remains are also known from North America, almost all of which belong to the subgroup Elmisaurinae.The earliest definitive caenangnathoid is Microvenator celer, which dates to the late Aptian age of the early Cretaceous period, though the slightly earlier Caudipteryx from the lower Yixian Formation of China, may also be a member of this group.David N. Payne
Sir David Neil Payne CBE FRS FREng (born 13 August 1944) is a British professor of photonics who is director of the Optoelectronics Research Centre at the University of Southampton. He has made several contributions in areas of optical fibre communications over the last fifty years and his work has affected telecommunications and laser technology. Payne’s work spans diverse areas of photonics, from telecommunications and optical sensors to nanophotonics and optical materials, including the introduction of the first optical fibre drawing tower in a university.Faith Wainwright
Faith Helen Wainwright (born 1962) is a British structural engineer, and a director of Arup Group. She has led in the structural design of multiple landmark buildings including the American Air Museum and the Tate Modern and holds an honorary doctorate from the University of Bath. Wainwright is the 2018 President of the Institution of Structural Engineers and sits on the Editorial Board of Ingenia (the educational magazine of the Royal Academy of Engineering).Heyuannia
Heyuannia ("from Heyuan") is a genus of oviraptorid dinosaur that lived during the Late Cretaceous Period in China. It was the first oviraptorid found in that country; most others were found in neighbouring Mongolia. Two species are known: H. huangi, named by Lü Junchang in 2002; and H. yanshini, originally named as a separate genus Ingenia by Rinchen Barsbold in 1981 (and renamed to Ajancingenia in 2013 due to the preoccupation of Ingenia).Ingenia Communications Corporation
Ingenia Communications Corporation is the name of a Canadian internet technology company that was acquired in 2001. The company was incubated at the Carleton University Faculty of Engineering and Design in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Ingenia became known on the world stage for supporting the development of Canada's SchoolNet and received a number of awards. In the early dot-com days Ingenia had a fairly high-profile at conferences and worked on marquee projects for the Canadian federal government and other public and private-sector organizations. President Karen Kostaszek received awards including the 1995 Caldwell Partners Top 40 Under 40 Award.In the mid 1990s Ingenia's faced leadership and strategic challenges related to a drive to migrate from a services to a products company. In 1997 Ingenia encountered financial difficulties when an investment deal was not successfully concluded. The company narrowly avoided bankruptcy in being acquired by Stittsville-based Software Kinetics in a two-year earned buy-out arrangement which included taking on the majority of the company's employees, the clients, and contracts. Software Kinetics was then taken over by Xwave Solutions which is the IT Consulting arm of the maritime TelCo Aliant.Ingenia Technology
Ingenia Technology, formed in 2003, is an international security technology company and inventor of Laser Surface Authentication, a technique used for brand protection, track and trace and document authentication.Khaan
Khaan (; Mongol [χaːŋ] 'lord') was an oviraptorid dinosaur that was found in the Djadochta Formation of Mongolia and lived in the Late Cretaceous Period (Campanian), 75 million years ago.List of female Fellows of the Royal Academy of Engineering
The page lists female Fellows of the Royal Academy of Engineering (FREng), elected by the Royal Academy of Engineering in the UK.
The Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng), founded in 1976, is the youngest of the five national academies in the UK. It represents the nation's best practising engineers, innovators and entrepreneurs, who are very often in leading roles in industry, business and academia. Fellowship of the RAEng is a national honour, bringing prestige to both the individual and any organisation the Fellow is associated with. In recent years between 50 and 60 new Fellows have been chosen each year by peer review from nominations made by the current Fellowship;. Those proposed for Fellowship must come “from among eminent engineers regarded by virtue of their personal achievements in the field of engineering as being of exceptional merit and distinction”.All 130 of the Founding Fellows in 1976 were men. Four women were elected in the first 20 years, the first in 1982. In all, 13 female Fellows pre-date 2000, with a further 23 elected before 2010. In 2010 the Council determined a policy that over time 10-20% of newly elected Fellows should be women.The Academy currently has a diversity policy and staff appointed to pursue it, both within the institution and across the engineering profession.As of 2018, 85 women have been elected to Fellowship, plus six International Fellows, two Honorary Fellows and one Royal Fellow. Female engineers make up 4% of the total current Fellowship.MacRobert Award
The MacRobert Award is regarded as the leading prize recognising UK innovation in engineering by corporations. It was established in 1969 by the MacRobert Trusts and is now presented by the Royal Academy of Engineering, supported by the Worshipful Company of Engineers and industry sponsors. The winning company will receive a gold medal and a cash sum of £50,000.Machairasaurus
Machairasaurus is a genus of oviraptorid dinosaur which was found in the Bayan Mandahu Formation, China dating to the late Cretaceous period.During the Sino-Canadian expeditions of 1988 and 1990 some skeletons of unknown oviraptorosaurians were discovered by Philip J. Currie in Inner Mongolia. Based on two of these a new genus was named and described by Nicholas R. Longrich, Currie and Dong Zhiming in 2010 with as type species Machairasaurus leptonychus. The generic name is derived from Greek μάχαιρα (makhaira), "short scimitar". The specific name is derived from Greek λεπτός (leptos), "slender", and ὄνυξ (onyx), "claw". The species name as a whole refers to the sabre-like claws of the hand.The holotype, IVPP V15979, was found in layers of the Bayan Mandahu dating from the late Campanian. It mainly consists of a left frontlimb, including the lower end of the lower arm, two carpal bones and a complete hand. Also some fragmentary foot elements were present. The other find is the paratype, IVPP V15980, consisting of a very fragmentary skeleton including tail vertebrae, chevrons, ribs, phalanges of the hands, fragments of the second and fourth metatarsals and pedal phalanges.Five oviraptorid specimens associated with a nest, the female having been found brooding near the eggs, may belong to Machairasaurus.Machairasaurus was a small bipedal theropod. The describers established a single autapomorphy, unique derived trait: the hand claws are very elongated and blade-like in side view, with a length four times that of the joint height. The long claws would be proof that basal oviraptorids used their hands to pull down branches; the more curved claws of more derived forms would have served to dig up roots.Machairasaurus was in 2010 assigned to the Oviraptoridae, more precisely to the Ingeniinae. It formed a smaller clade with "Ingenia" yanshini, Heyuannia huangi, Conchoraptor gracilis, and Nemegtomaia barsboldi.Mike Shaver
Shaver attended high school at Lisgar Collegiate Institute in Ottawa, where he began working with Ingenia Communications Corporation, an Ottawa-area computer consultancy that later dissolved. His efforts saw him rise from a summer student who worked as a system administrator and software developer to chief systems architect and eventually Chief technical officer. Shaver eventually left to work at Netscape Communications and later zerøknowledge, Cluster File Systems, and the Oracle Corporation. Beginning as a visiting developer, he quickly rose through the ranks and eventually gained Internet fame by becoming a founding member of the Mozilla Organization in 1998.
He served as VP of Engineering and VP of Technical Strategy for the Mozilla Corporation where he helped people understand, build, and benefit from an open Web.He was also at the center of the "ten fucking days" imbroglio wherein he wrote on his business card "ten fucking days" referencing a recent ten-day turnaround for a security flaw from notification to releasing a fixed version of Firefox. His intent was to show confidence in Mozilla's ability to quickly address security issues, but it was misunderstood as a general or official Mozilla policy.Philosophy of engineering
The philosophy of engineering is an emerging discipline that considers what engineering is, what engineers do, and how their work affects society, and thus includes aspects of ethics and aesthetics, as well as the ontology, epistemology, etc. that might be studied in, for example, the philosophy of science.Royal Academy of Engineering
The Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) is the UK’s national academy of engineering.
The Academy was founded in June 1976 as the Fellowship of Engineering with support from Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who became the first Senior Fellow and, as of 2018, remains so. The Fellowship was incorporated and granted a Royal Charter on 17 May 1983 and became the Royal Academy of Engineering on 16 March 1992. It is governed according to the Charter and associated Statutes and Regulations (as amended from time to time).SchoolNet
Canada's SchoolNet was a partnership run by Industry Canada to promote the effective use of information and communications technologies (ICT) in libraries and schools across the country. Many important early Canadian ICT programs fell under the SchoolNet umbrella, including Computers for Schools, LibraryNet, First Nations SchoolNet, and Canada's Digital Collections.Notable early projects included the SchoolNet MOO and the Special Needs Education (SNE)  network. The MOO was abandoned by Industry Canada in 1998, but a non-profit corporation was set up to continue running the MOO under the name MOO Canada Eh!.. From 1999-2001, SchoolNet funded Project Achieve MOO developed at the Knowledge Media Design Institute at the University of Toronto. The SNE was managed initially by Keenan Wellar at Ingenia Communications Corporation until 1997 when the project moved with Wellar to LiveWorkPlay until it was discontinued along with the rest of SchoolNet by Industry Canada.
The SchoolNet project was active from 1995 to the early 2000s, and the site was taken offline on June 20, 2007.Servo drive
A servo drive is a special electronic amplifier used to power electric servomechanisms.
A servo drive monitors the feedback signal from the servomechanism and continually adjusts for deviation from expected behavior.Warren East
