Our aims

By running USES 2015 we hope to:

  • Strengthen interactions within the University of Sheffield, in particular, to enhance communication and increase research collaborations across the Faculty of Engineering and beyond;
  • Create a dynamic environment for presenting, transferring, and exchanging the know-how and latest advanced research highlights and scientific achievements in engineering.


Themes for the morning parallels sessions are:

1. Computational Modelling: From atoms to Continuum Mechanics
2. Biotechnology and Biomedical Engineering
3. Efficient Technological Solutions for Tomorrow’s Society
4. Automatic systems, intelligent systems and robotics
5. Saving our planet: Engineering a better future
6. Advances in Industrial Design
7. Advanced functional Materials for Engineering and Life Sciences
A full description of the themes can be found here

Who should attend?

We look forward to welcoming Postgraduate Researchers, Postdoctoral Research Assistants and Early Career Researchers who are part of the Faculty of Engineering or whose work has a focus on engineering. Delegates from professional bodies or industry, alumni researchers who are interested in finding out more about enterprise, work in industry or achieving Chartered status are also welcome.This event is organised by students for students – if you would like to find out more about our committee please visit the committee members page.
