Mathematics as tough as steel


Steel is one of the main building blocks of modern society. This is because of all the metallic materials, steel – which is mainly iron – is the most advantageous to produce from both an economic and environmental point of view. Also, steel is extremely versatile: there are thousands of steels with properties suited to […]

Stepping Out of Industry to Peruse a PhD in Mathematical Modelling


By Simon Kaar. I am a Mechanical Engineer. During the previous fifteen years I have specialised in the design and development of medical devices. Typically, hand held devices used by diabetics to monitor blood glucose and asthma sufferers to administer drug to the lungs. The medical device industry is highly regulated. This has traditionally assured […]

Frontloading Impact: S-Shaped Research Strategies


By Dr. William Lee The way in which research is judged and research proposals are evaluated for funding is changing. National and European funding agencies are telling academics that the very best research, i.e. the research they will fund, is academically excellent, but also has a real world impact. Whilst this overall goal is clear there is more than one […]
