Electronics and Electrical Engineering at the School of Engineering

On Wednesday 10 July, students from the School of Engineering, the School of Informatics and other universities outside of the UK took part in a lightning presentation event. The Two-Minute Project Presentation event marks the mid-point of the School’s summer internship programme and provides students with an opportunity to showcase the projects they have been working on, while also practising their presentation skills.

Winner of the Two-Minute Project Presentation event, Eduards Berzins (third from left) is presented with prize by PhD student Evangelos Kafantaris, alongside runners-up, Courtney Blain (second from left) and Doga Satir (second from right) and other judging panel members, Professor Tim Stratford and Naomi Imms

Fourth year Electronics and Electrical Engineering student Qirui Hua has won the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Prize for outstanding degree performance. The IET Prize is awarded annually to outstanding students who are completing a course of study which has been accredited by the IET. Prize winners are nominated by their University based on the distinction they have achieved in a course leading to the award of a single honours undergraduate degree.

Software developed by the School’s Dr Antonis Giannopoulos and Northumbria University’s Dr Craig Warren has been selected by Google to take part in its prestigious Summer of Code mentoring programme. Google’s international scheme connects talented student coders with software development companies offering paid opportunities over the summer holidays.

In early May, the School invited two speakers from the United States to run a whole-day intensive careers event for postdoctoral researchers. The workshops - which focused on career building, transitioning to non-academic roles, and overcoming barriers to productivity - were facilitated by Dr Karen Kelsky and Kellee Weinhold, of The Professor Is In, who provide specialist advice on all elements of the academic and post-academic career and job search.
