The Hyperloop society at the University of Edinburgh, HypED, was recently selected to build a prototype for the global finals of SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition, which will take place in late August at SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California.
A world-leading marine energy testing facility is to become a fully integrated part of the University of Edinburgh - ensuring its continuation as a global centre of excellence in wave and tidal technologies.
Congratulations to Marcin Dawydzik, who graduated in 2015 with an MEng in Structural Engineering with Architecture, on coming joint 2nd in the New Civil Engineer Graduate Award of the Year in a field of strong shortlisted candidates.
The New Civil Engineer said that as well as simply being brilliant graduates, this year’s Graduate Awards contenders were asked to set out a plan for what they intend to do in their year as Graduate of the Year. All six finalists had great ideas, but the ideas from our winner – and our joint runners up – were truly smart and truly inspirational. That said, all six had ideas worth developing and our judges are determined to see all six develop over the next 12 months.
The School of Engineering is delighted to introduce our MSc in Electrical Power Engineering, a brand new programme specifically designed to help meet the industry’s worldwide demand for highly skilled power engineers. From conventional to distributed and renewable generation, and from micro- and smart grids to High Voltage DC transmission systems, the MSc in Electrical Power Engineering covers the analysis, design and operation of both conventional and disruptive electrical power components, systems and processes at a wide range of different scales.
Dr Enzo Mangano has been recently awarded best Italian early-stage academic working in Scotland in Physical and Engineering Sciences. The award, which is now at its 3rd edition, was made this year for the first time also as a separate prize for Italian researchers working in Scotland.
