I would imagine there are quite a few technologies that would attract college-age kids these days. Kids are becoming much more tech oriented in their toys and communications devices. Seems that would naturally convert into an interest in a wide range of technology.

Rob, I agree the new generation is interested in UAV technology.  When I teach for a local university a lot of students show an interest in working with UAVs.

The current push of UAVs are allowing engineers to push the performance envelope because the safety envelope is somewhat relaxed.  Manned flight requires a level of safety and reliability that can be sacrificed for performance in the UAV market.  It will be interesting to see the development of peformance products in the UAV and how that will affect the other aircraft segments down the road.

This is the kind of technology that is attracting a new generation of kids to engineering.

The marriage of mechatronics know-how and advanced software tools is refining dynamic machine performance using measurements and innovative motion algorithms.
Two different shape-shifting polymers have been announced from two different universities: Wyss Institute at Harvard University and Zhejiang University in eastern China. Both of them change their shapes when immersed in water, and the one from Wyss Institute was made with 3D-printing techniques.
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
The machine is claimed to be the largest and most powerful electric pipe-bender on the market, exerting nearly 500,000 lb-ft of torque.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
