Several innovative student projects within the School have been awarded Student Experience Grants in the latest round of funding announcements, which will accelerate exciting initiatives across soft robotics, transport apps, self-driving cars and public outreach over the coming year. The grants are funded by alumni donations, and are designed to enhance student development across a wide range of academic and extracurricular areas.
Dr Katherine Dunn of the Institute for Bioengineering, has been awarded funding to establish a European consortium that will focus on the development of new devices and systems to improve the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of disease, using engineered biological molecules and nanotechnology.
Two of our School's partnership projects have been recognised for making outstanding contributions to the Scottish renewables energy industry at the Scottish Green Energy Awards ceremony on Thursday 6 December 2018.
Academics at the School of Engineering and the School of Geosciences have re-launched the world’s first free open online course exploring how carbon capture and storage technology (CCS) can be used to tackle climate change.
Dr Timm Krüger, Lecturer in Chemical Engineering at the Institute for Multiscale Thermofluids, has won one of three 2018 ERC Starting Grants awarded to researchers at the University of Edinburgh for a project to improve disease diagnostics.
Ruben Bravo, a PhD student in the Institute for Energy Systems, has won an award for a presentation he delivered at the 3rd Annual Conference in Energy Storage and Its Applications from the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy. In addition, he was awarded a grant to collaborate with researchers at the University of Seville on the optimisation of solar power plants with thermochemical storage.
Professor Timothy Drysdale was recently recognised for his pioneering work in remote laboratories for undergraduate engineering teaching. Having won the National Instruments Engineering Impact Award for Education in the Europe, Middle East and Asia region, he now goes forward to the international final in May 2019, in Austin, Texas.
