  • Oil & Gas Technology Centre invests in robotics projects

    The Oil & Gas Technology Centre has invested in robotics projects to transform pressure vessel inspection which has been identified by the sector as a major challenge to maximising economic recovery from the UK Continental Shelf.  The projects, selected as part of the Centre's first Asset Integrity ‘Call for Ideas’, aim to provide significant cost and safety benefits, through the development of non-intrusive inspection techniques of the pressure vessels.

    Willie Reid, Director of the Strathclyde Oil & Gas Institute said: "The robotics team at Strathclyde, led by Dr Gordon Dobie and Dr Efru Yang, of the Centre for Ultrasonic Engineering (CUE), are excited to be working with the Oil & Gas Technology Centre on these challenges for improving inspection of offshore asset integrity. In a multi-disciplinary approach, they will use the broad experience of both CUE and the Department of Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management."

  • £10,000 for Rising Star undergraduate student

    Marnie McKay, a year 4 student on the MEng Electrical & Mechanical Engineering with International Study course has won the John Mather "Rising Star" award.

    Currently studying for a year in Singapore at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) as part of her course, it was Marnie's exceptional academic peformance, role as a STEM ambassador and her active participation in IET and Royal Academy of Engineering initiatives to promote awareness of STEM subjects, that made her the stand-out candidate. 

    Marnie siad: "I am absolutely over the moon, and still in shock! This award will help me achieve my goals by helping to fund professional qualifications, international study and attending learnign and developments."
