Eric Aylward is a Multimedia Designer and RPAS Operator with SEM based in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. He graduated in 2017 with a Bachelor of Information Technology as well as a Multimedia Development Advanced Diploma. He is experienced in 2D print and web design, motion graphics, video editing, 3D modelling and animation, and virtual reality development.
Eric developed an interest for virtual reality and after completing several VR-related projects, was hired at SEM post-grad to design and develop virtual tours of industrial facilities and VR training modules. This led into using drones to aid in media capture and using them as tools for other tasks. He has since completed inspections of ore processing equipment, facility inspections, and site surveys using RPAS technology. Eric has also designed and 3D-printed mounting equipment to attach air quality sampling units to drones.
