We are proud of our entrepreneurial, innovative students in the School of Engineering. Often, all they need to make their projects a reality is a little financial help. Here, some of our students talk about the difference that a donation from the Engineering Student Innovation Fund (formerly the Vision Engineering Fund) has made to their work.
A research project led by Dr Javier Escudero has been awarded funding by the Leverhulme Trust. The research will create new data science methods to analyse multiple time series – which are data points indexed in time order – measured by sensors located in different places.
Dr Adam Stokes and Dr Philip Hands from the School of Engineering have each won a Principal’s Innovation Award, a new prize given by the University’s commercialisation service Edinburgh Innovations to help researchers unlock new funding streams for unusual and ground breaking ideas.
Key information for new and continuing undergraduate and postgraduate taught students at the School of Engineering in the 2020/21 academic year.
Here in the School of Engineering, we have been working hard to adapt to the new conditions created by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The safety of our students and staff remains our first priority. Therefore, in response to ongoing Scottish Government guidance, and drawing on the best available practice, we have developed a 'hybrid' approach for teaching and learning.
Kang came to the University of Edinburgh as a student on the 2+2 joint programme - having spent the first two years of his degree at North China Electric Power University. Kang explains what has made his time in Scotland so unforgettable - from sampling the skiing at Glencoe, to joining thousands of people from across the world on Princes Street for Hogmanay celebrations.
Erik from Trelleborg in Sweden shares his standout memories of being a student at the University of Edinburgh - from leading the development of a self-driving electric race car as part of the Edinburgh University Formula Student, to playing rugby in front of 12,000 people at Murrayfield stadium - and provides his top tips for freshers joining Edinburgh in autumn 2020.
