  • A group of researchers from the University of Edinburgh's School of Engineering and California Institute of Technology have developed an inexpensive way to make products incorporating nanoparticles, such as high-performance energy devices and sophisticated diagnostic tests. The new manufacturing process, known as electrospinning, could speed the commercial development of devices, materials and technologies that exploit the physical properties of nanoparticles.

  • Over the weekend of 5th–7th October 2018, alumni, staff and students gathered to mark 150 years of engineering creativity at the School of Engineering.
