We are delighted to present our plans to create a new Maker Space within the School of Engineering for our students. Our vision is to provide a creative and functional space where students can practise, create and innovate. MakerSpace@Eng will be a place for our students to grow and learn in a stimulating, bespoke environment, engaging in hands-on projects where they will have the opportunity to bring their learning to life and transform ideas into three-dimensional reality.

Salvador Barranco Cárceles, PhD research student at the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Intelligent Sensing and Measurement, has won the best poster award at the IEEE UK Circuits and Systems Workshop 2019. His poster entitled Transforming Radiology: Flat Panel X-Ray Sources for Novel 3D Medical Imaging scooped the top prize at the event held at the Chelsea Old Town Hall, London in December.

Professor Peter Grant, the School’s Emeritus Professor and former Regius Chair of Engineering, has shed new light on the historical development of the measurement of electrical resistance in a journal article published in the Proceedings of the IEEE journal. Professor Grant's article explores the role of his predecessor, Professor Fleeming Jenkin, who was the first Regius Chair of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh, in helping to standardise the definition of electrical resistance.

The School’s Professor Harald Haas is leading the University’s involvement in INITIATE, an EPSRC-funded project which has just opened a call for collaboration from third party projects to explore the future capabilities of the internet. INITIATE brings together the UK’s expertise in network research and innovation along with operational, state-of the-art facilities at five leading networking labs in the Universities of Bristol, Lancaster, Edinburgh and King’s College London as well as at Digital Catapult, London.
