Electronics and Electrical Engineering at the School of Engineering

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.
