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.
Applications are invited for a 20 month post at the School of Engineering in The University of Edinburgh to conduct research in multiscale particle simulation of industrial material processes using the discrete element method (DEM) and to develop new methodologies for analysing and visualising the discrete and continuum media.
Smart grid engineers understand the power network that the smart grid is designed for and how to communicate and process data concerning the power grid, so that it can be controlled effectively.
The ITN (Initial Training Network) ADVANTAGE is a major inter-disciplinary and inter-sectoral project between power and communications engineering research and development communities. It will train the next generation of engineers and scientists, leading to the development of smart grid technology within Europe and internationally. This 4 year research programme is led and co-ordinated by the University of Edinburgh.
