Julia Faerber, a PhD student from Heriot-Watt's School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, has been selected to display a poster on her research work at the prestigious SET for Britain at the House of Commons.
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.
A team of astrophysicists, engineers and computer scientists are spearheading research on imaging techniques which will potentially not only unlock secrets from the far reaches of the universe, but also impact modern medicine.
Yoann Altmann, Research fellow working with Prof. Steve McLaughlin and Prof. Andrew Wallace at the Institute of Sensors, Signals and Systems (ISSS), has been awarded a “Prix de These Leopold Escande”, from the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse (INPT), France.
Di Wu, an ERPE PhD student has just won the coveted DSTL prize on their recent challenge competition on spectral deconvolution. Other researchers from the UDRC entered the competition back in October where the challenge was to identify a range of chemicals utilising signal processing expertise.
The microwave and antenna engineering research cluster of MISEC, Institute of Sensors Signals and Systems in the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, hosted the inaugural working group and management committee meeting of COST Action ic1301 WiPE: Wireless Power Transmission for Sustainable Electronics on 24 and 25 March at the Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh Campus.
ERPE has developed a low temperature 5,120 pixel astronomical detector for a sub-millimetre camera operating at wavelengths of 450 and 850 microns. The SCUBA-2 camera, installed on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope, scans the sky an unprecedented 200 times faster than its predecessor.
A new £10 million innovation hub, which will bring together Scottish universities, including Heriot-Watt, with industry partners has been launched in Glasgow by Fergus Ewing, MSP, Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism.
Our programme of research delivers world leading research in signal and image processing from fundamental theoretical and algorithmic work through to its translation to specific audio, video, radar/sonar, and medical imaging applications.
