Ieuan's winning idea in the SatelLife Challenge was a tool that would map change in urban areas using satellites and algorithms, identifying current building sites and potential areas for development.
"I came up with my idea after combining my knowledge of current space technology with my areas of interest in computer science. I used this knowledge to form a realistic business solution I thought would be both useful and achievable.
"I've had an interest in space technologies since I was young and I think there's something special about space that is really good at sparking people's imagination."
With the ever-growing demand for evolving and improving in science, Ieuan believes it's natural that he has fallen into tech. It's also why he's willing to jump at any related opportunities. He advises:
"As a student you should maintain a constant interest in things going on around you. It gives you a set of tools and provides information that you can use to solve problems more effectively."
Ieuan was able to apply his interests and passions for the SatelLife Challenge, but winning came as a massive shock.
"This unexpected result has given me the confidence to continue researching and working on my ideas in my spare time."
