Dr Rory Hadden has been working with engineers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Maryland, USA, the US Forest Service, and New Jersey Forest Fire Service to observe the behaviour of forest fires from within using a 360-degree water-cooled camera.

The School’s Dr Martin Sweatman has decoded a system of Pictish symbols and revealed its link with other symbol systems used by ancient civilisations across the world.

University Court has committed funding for a major new School of Engineering building at its Meeting on Monday 30 September 2019.

Dr Simone Dimartino’s research group have won first prize for their science communication video at an international conference in Milan. The video, which was filmed in the style of a 'silent film' from the early 20th century, takes inspiration from Milan Cathedral to illustrate a novel way to separate liquid using 3D printing.

The School of Engineering is part of a network of leading UK universities and international industry bodies aiming to accelerate the switch to green energy and propulsion across road, rail, sea and air freight.

School of Engineering researchers have revealed insights into how minute, yet powerful, bubbles form and collapse on underwater surfaces. This new understanding could help make industrial structures such as ship propellers more hardwearing.

Wave energy company Mocean Energy has selected technology developed by the School's Professor Markus Mueller to power its new prototype.

School of Engineering researchers have devised a fabric dressing which could improve wound recovery for patients suffering from burns or skin grafts.

Researchers from the School of Engineering are part of a pan-University research hub for quantum-enhanced imaging systems, which just received a £28m funding boost from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

The sixth meeting of the UK Fluids Network SIG on Sprays was recently held at the University of Edinburgh's Pollock Halls on 16th August 2019.

The School’s Deputy Head of School and Bert Whittington Chair Professor Gareth Harrison is part of an expert panel which recently concluded a major inquiry into the future of Scotland’s energy.

PhD student Xioayan (Alan) Shi recently won Best Student Paper at the UK-China Emerging Technologies Conference which took place at the University of Glasgow on 21-22 August 2019.
