Open day opens doors to interdisciplinary research

More than 40 researchers from across the University took part in the open day held in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering last week to find out about research taking place in the Department and discuss potential future collaborations.

The researchers heard talks from several members of the Department who each described their areas of work. This ranges from power generation and supply systems to the use of radiowaves to monitor climate change in the upper layers of our atmosphere.

“The feedback from the people who came to the day was incredibly positive,” said Professor John Taylor, Head of the Department.

“The aim was to inspire potential collaborations between researchers in the Department and elsewhere in the University, and clearly a number of channels have been opened that could lead to interesting proposals being developed.

“Interdisciplinary research is important as projects become ever more complex, so it is vital that we are all aware of each others work.”
