When doing tasks we are often confronted with a fundamental question: shall I do it fast or do it precisely? From experience we know that achieving both is exceedingly difficult; compromise is the best bet. But can speed and precision be maximised at the same time? A new study from Dr.
Simone Dimartino, recently appointed to the School within the Institute for Bioengineering (IBioE) in February 2016, has been granted with the Csaba Horváth Young Scientist award for his contribution at the 44th International Symposium on High Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques, HPLC 2016, in San Francisco. Simone has presented the work he is carrying out with his overseas collaborators at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. The work focuses on the implementation of 3D printing for the manufacture of bespoke devices for the separation and purification of proteins and other biomolecules.
pureLiFi, the global leader in LiFi technologies, has announced the completion of its Series B Financing Round led by Temasek. The funding will support the development and commercialization of its proprietary cutting-edge LiFi technology that uses modulated LED light to provide wireless communications, with the potential to be significantly faster than current WiFi technology. Harald Haas, the founder of pureLiFi and the “father of LiFi”, said “I am absolutely delighted that this significant step for pureLiFi has been achieved towards unlocking the grand LiFi vision”.
2018 will mark the 150th anniversary of the Regius Chair of Engineering, thus establishing engineering studies at the University of Edinburgh on a par with the best in the UK. The School of Engineering will be marking this significant anniversary with a programme of events and activities. Planning has begun, and we also want to receive ideas and suggestions from our community of staff, students and alumni – or indeed anyone with a great idea!
On 23 June 2016 the UK electorate voted in a national referendum to leave the EU. There is no immediate, material change for our staff, students and EU-funded programmes, however, there will of course be many questions that staff and students, current and prospective, wish to ask. This site aims to address many of the immediate issues. Given the uncertainty at this stage, we may not be able to answer all your queries, or to answer them definitively, but we will work hard to keep you updated with the relevant changes.
