The School of Engineering is part of a network of leading UK universities and international industry bodies aiming to accelerate the switch to green energy and propulsion across road, rail, sea and air freight modes. Three academics from our School are representing the University of Edinburgh in the network: Dr Ignazio Maria Viola who is Co-Investigator on the project, alongside Professor Steve Finney and Professor Markus Müller – all from the School’s Institute for Energy Systems (IES).
For International Women in Engineering Day 2019, Anna Garcia-Teruel shares a snapshot of her work on renewable technologies as a PhD student in the School's Institute for Energy Systems (IES), and her advice for the next generation of women interested in studying engineering.
Institute of Energy Systems (IES) PhD student Gabriele Pisetta has won the College of Science and Engineering's heat to qualify for the final of the University's 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition. Gabriele's winning presentation showcased his work on morphing blades for tidal turbines. The 3MT competition requires doctoral researchers to compete to deliver the best research presentation in just 3 minutes (and one slide).
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.
