Researchers from the School of Engineering are part of a pan-University research hub for quantum-enhanced imaging systems, which just received a £28m funding boost from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). Chancellor’s Fellow in Electronics Dr Danial Chitnis and Professor Robert Henderson from the School’s Institute for Integrated Micro and Nano Systems (IMNS), are members of the UK Quantum Technology Hub in Quantum Enhanced Imaging (QuantIC) which received the funding.
Dr Simona Aracri is a Post-Doctoral Research Associate (PDRA) in the School’s Institute for Integrated Micro and Nano Systems (IMNS) based at the Scottish Microelectronics Centre. Within IMNS, she belongs to the Soft Systems Group. She took part in the following interview to mark International Women in Engineering Day 2019.
Dr Karen Donaldson, a Post-Doctoral Research Associate (PDRA) in the School’s Soft Systems Group took part in the following interview for International Women in Engineering Day 2019, to share her career journey so far, along with inspiration and advice for the female engineers of the future.
Fifth year School students Tze Liang Chee (Electrical and Mechanical Engineering) and Nikolay Momchev (Electronics and Electrical Engineering), have won the Telegraph STEM Awards 2019 Innovation Challenge category for their proposal for a robotic strawberry picking device.
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.
