Nikolay Momchev and Martin Stano were selected as winners at the Electronics and Electrical Engineering Poster Day in March 2019, at which all fifth year MEng students presented posters to showcase their final year projects.
In a School first, two successful PhD vivas with the same Principal Supervisor took place in a single day on Friday 26 April 2019. Huge congratulations to Hanning Mai and Chandrasekaran Gunasekaran who will both be recommended for the PhD degree following assessment by their respective internal and external examiners.
Earlier this month, on Tuesday 9 April, the Royal Society of Chemistry Scotland and North of England Electrochemistry Symposium 2019, also known as the “Butler Meeting”, was hosted at the School. Over 80 delegates gathered for the one-day symposium, which presented an opportunity for PhD students and PDRAs from across Scotland and the North of England to meet their peers and showcase their research in any field related to fundamental and applied electrochemistry.
A group of students from the School has become one of only 20 teams in the UK to reach the shortlist stage of the Royal Academy of Engineering Global Grand Challenges Summit (GGCS) 2019. GGCS is a challenge-led innovation, design and business development programme which invites student teams to propose innovations to address global challenges, ranging from world hunger and water shortages to equal access to technology.
The School's Dr Katherine Dunn recently chaired the international research meeting Nucleic Acids in MEdicine (NAME) 2019 at Murchison House, exploring possibilities for collaboration between European academics and industry partners at the interface between engineering and life sciences.
