Matt Harrison chosen as one of our 12 Alumni to watch

Description
The University's 300,000th student will graduate this summer and join our alumni community. To celebrate this occasion we asked staff and students for nominations for our 300,000th alumni and our Top 12 Alumni to watch. Final year Physics student Matt Harrison was one of those and we will be following his journey into graduate life.

Women in Engineering: Past, Present and Future

Description
To celebrate National Women in Engineering Day on 23 June British Gas Business held a panel event featuring prominent female engineers.

Professor Yvonne Elsworth elected Royal Society Fellow

Description
Congratulations to Professor Yvonne Elsworth on her election as a Fellow of the Royal Society, a fellowship of many of the world's most distinguished scientists drawn from all areas of science, engineering and medicine.

What next at the Large Hadron Collider?

Description
It is rare for an academic discipline to double the observable landscape that it's able to study, but that's what's currently happening in particle physics. Over the past two years, around 400 engineers and technicians have together put in about a million hours to prepare the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to produce collisions between protons at almost twice the energy previously attained.
