Professor Timothy Drysdale was recently recognised for his pioneering work in remote laboratories for undergraduate engineering teaching. Having won the National Instruments Engineering Impact Award for Education in the Europe, Middle East and Asia region, he now goes forward to the international final in May 2019, in Austin, Texas.
A group of researchers from the University of Edinburgh's School of Engineering and California Institute of Technology have developed an inexpensive way to make products incorporating nanoparticles, such as high-performance energy devices and sophisticated diagnostic tests. The new manufacturing process, known as electrospinning, could speed the commercial development of devices, materials and technologies that exploit the physical properties of nanoparticles.
The leader of the world’s second-largest economy has been given a presentation of LiFi – the high-speed wireless data transmission technology created by the School of Engineering’s Professor Harald Haas.
