  • Academic appointed Scientific Director of new ORE Catapult Research Hub

    The Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult has appointed Strathclyde and Manchester universities to form its £3.1 million Electrical Infrastructure Research Hub (EIRH).

    The Hub will accelerate R&D activities, tackling the challenge of making the UK's electrical infrastructure systems future-proof to meet the needs of the growing offshore renewables sector.

    Professor Keith Bell, of the Department's Institute for Energy & Environment, and Prof Ian Cotton of Manchester University, will act as Scientific Directors for the EIRH, working  alongside the ORE catapult's Head of Strategic Research, Paul McKeever, to deliver an R&D programme led by key and emerging industrial challenges. 

  • UG student wins Herald Higher Education Award

    Marnie McKay, a final Year MEng Electrical & Mechanical Engineering with International Study student, won "the Outstanding Contribution from a Student Award" at the Herald Higher Education Awards 2018. 

    Described as a "Sterling ambassador for Strathclyde", Marnie is a role model for the University's student community.  She is a STEM ambassador, visiting local schools to promote awareness of engineering, mentors school pupils to identify and overcome barriers to Higher Education, supports delivery of the University's Scottish Space School and Accelerate outreach prgrammes, and provides voluntary Physics tuition to pupils in her home town of Falkirk. 

    Marnie holds an Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Diamond Jubilee Scholarship, chaired the scholars committee, and is one of the IET’s Young Professionals Community Council. She also holds a Royal Academy of Engineering Leaders Scholarship, and earlier this year, won the John Mather Rising Star Prize.

    Just back from a year studying at NTU, Singapore, Marnie is now looking forward to her final year...after which, she's aiming for a career in the power sector.

  • MSc Smart Grids launched

    The Department has just launched its new MSc in Smart Grids in partnership with the ICAI School of Engineering at the Comillas Pontifical University, Madrid & Iberdrola.

    The course responds to the growing demand for engineers required to lead the process of the digitalisation of the electric grid, and is aimed at graduates in electrical, electronic and telecommunications engineering. It provides a unique opportunity for extensive international experience, with one term spent in both Spain and Scotland, followed by a paid internship in one of Iberdrola's branch offices in Brazil, Spain, the UK or USA.

    The MSc is delivered by an academic team of international researchers from both Universities, with extensive support on the utility of the future given by industry partner, Iberdrola.
