First student cohort has successfully completed the MRes

The first cohort has completed their eleven months MRes course and is now preparing to embark on their individual PhD projects in five different Departments.

The first cohort of ten Sensor CDT students has successfully completed the MRes. Over the last eleven months the students attended a set of bespoke and in-depth lectures, received training on numerous advanced equipment across the University and carried out three projects of increasing complexity.

Their final project on a sensor suite which will help elderly people living a more independent life was a three months team effort. It was supported by mentors from the health care industry and some of the CDT's core industrial partners and supervisors. The results of the project, which already have received a lot of positive comments, will be presented at the Sensors Day.

The students are now embarking on their individual PhD projects in the Departments of Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Materials Science, Physics and Biochemistry. Topics include adaptive tactile sensing for robotics, measuring protein aggregation in primary containers for the pharmaceutical industry, bore well monitoring in oil and gas installations, ultrahigh throughout screening using micro droplets and advanced image processing for optical sensing.

A Creativity Sandpit took place on 15-17 May 2018 at Easthamstead Park near Bracknell in a big old mansion and about 30 brilliant minds working together. It was organised by the High Performance Embedded and Distributed Systems (HiPEDS) CDT at Imperial College. In addition to HiPEDS and Sensor CDT, the Warwick Urban Science CDT joined in as well.
