MK2 was born from a university honours project in 2015 at Adelaide University. Tasked with improving STEM engagement, three mechanical engineering students - Thomas Moyle, Phillip and Thomas Kuys - formed a group that would eventually become MK2 Engineering Solutions. MK2 is Moyle-Kuys-Kuys (pronounced: em-kay-too). Perhaps it could have been PTT or PT2, but MK2 has a ring to it.
The project was a success and won Best Project at Ingenuity 2015, 2nd place at the 2015 eChallange, and the Microsoft Innovation Award. After which the group founded a private company to continue the work. Since then the company has developed, expanded, and continually attempts to create positive impacts wherever possible.
