Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh welcome the outstanding results of REF2014 for the Edinburgh Research Partnership in Engineering (ERPE). 94% of our overall research activity is world-leading or internationally excellent. This, combined with the number of academic staff involved, makes Edinburgh the UK powerhouse in Engineering.

Tuesday 14 October is Ada Lovelace Day, an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

Ada Lovelace Day Podcast
To celebrate we have developed an Ada Lovelace Day podcast (16 mins) of staff and students sharing stories of STEM women who have inspired them.

Colleagues featured in this recording are:

Professor Mercedes Maroto-Valer, interviewed by Dr Gabriela Medero and Dr Aruna Ivaturi, will be sharing tales of her career to date; the highs and lows, the pivotal times, people who made a difference, key events and life stages.

Research Futures has hosted the first UK national EPSRC Engineering Roadshow for Early Career Researchers at the Postgraduate Centre at Heriot-Watt's Edinburgh Campus.

The School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure & Society is a multidisciplinary school teaching across all disciplines relevant to the construction industry. Research is user focused and delivers solutions of practical value to industry and society.

ERPE research into shell structure design has worldwide impact in the storage and handling of granular solids. A core element of this research is to enhance and update EU design recommendations such as the Eurocodes (EN) and US (ASME and ACI) standards. With over 75% of the material feedstock industry being granular, ERPE research achieves impact in bulk materials handling across many industries.
