  • In early May, the School invited two speakers from the United States to run a whole-day intensive careers event for postdoctoral researchers. The workshops - which focused on career building, transitioning to non-academic roles, and overcoming barriers to productivity - were facilitated by Dr Karen Kelsky and Kellee Weinhold, of The Professor Is In, who provide specialist advice on all elements of the academic and post-academic career and job search.

  • On Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 May, the Hewitt-Reese Spring School for Modelling Multiphase Flows took place in honour of two pioneering fluid dynamicists – the School’s Professor Jason Reese and Professor Geoff Hewitt of Imperial College London – who both passed away earlier this year.

  • 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).

  • 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.
