Web-Chats with Assembly Members

We are looking for students and apprentices to take part in a web-chat with Assembly Members about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Skills in Wales. We want to hear your views on whether you think enough is being done to encourage young people to enter Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths courses. We would also like to hear your views on whether these courses enable young people to develop the required skills for a career in these fields.

Annual Lecture- Implicit Modelling Comes of Age Brian Wyvill (University of Bath)

Despite great advances in computer graphics, it still takes many hours to build detailed computer models.  The manufacturing industry is entrenched in parametric models, and the triangle mesh still dominates, both as the subject of most modeling research, and as a medium for content creation for games and the movies. GPU hardware for processing and scanning hardware for capture, support the mesh modelling methodology over all else.

Harnessing our Welsh sunshine

In Wales, we receive on average, 1,390 sunshine hours each year, which could potentially be converted to electricity. If we could capture and convert a small fraction of that, we would need no other source of generation to meet all our energy needs.

The technology to capture this energy is photovoltaics, which harnesses the sun’s rays and converts the energy into electricity which can then be used locally or fed into the national grid.

MEng students enjoy study trip of a lifetime to Brazil

Electronic Engineering students Sean Kiely and Paul Spencer recently spent nine weeks studying in Brazil. Sean writes about the experience:
"Brazil! I mean ... WOW! Four years ago when I was in college, if you told me I would be flying to the other side of the world to work on the most cutting edge research going, I would have told you, you had as much chance to become prime minister! But there I was on my BA flight (all expenses paid) to University of Sao Paulo in Sao Carlos."
