The Security Engineering Lab at UNSW Kensington has been christened with speeches, Tim Tams and a lock picking, and has now been handed over to students to make magic things happen.
The Lab has been designed for creativity, collaboration and experimentation, and we're all looking forward to seeing what amazing things come from it.
For the launch event, the folks at CBA commissioned illustrator Lew Keilar to pretty-up the whiteboards, we taught the Dean of Engineering how to crack some codes and pick some locks, and past and former students spoke about what sort of opportunities a space like this can bring on.
