Do you enjoy maths, technology or science?
The 2014 Electronics Summer School at Southampton
For the second year running, I am organising a one-week residential course (27th - 31st July 2015) to enable 16 and 17 year-old students to apply their skills to computer science and electronic engineering, working in groups and investigating and designing solutions to real projects in our undergraduate labs. As well as experiencing the facilities on campus, and taking part in labs and lectures, they will be living in halls and enjoying a busy programme on the University of Southampton campus.
I am leading the course with Dr Reena Pau, ECS Outreach Coordinator. To be eligble for the course, students should be aged 16+ when the course begins; studying maths and one of Physics, Electronics, Computing or Further Maths at A-level; and have mostly A/A* grades at GCSE.

Alex Presents DejaView Research at IET WSS19th June 2012
Today Alex presented his research at the IET conference on Wireless Sensing Systems (WSS). His paper was on the topic of "Adaptive Sampling in Context-Aware Systems: A Machine Learning Approach", and is a method he is researching to attempt to maximise the usefullness of images captured by the DejaView system, while minimising energy consumption.
Alex's presentation was recorded, and his slides and a video of the presentation can be watched on the IET website by clicking here.
WiSE Project Day12th November 2008
WiSE held it's first 'Project Day', an intensive one-day problem-based exercise for PhD students in ECS that are researching wireless sensing related topics. Ten students took part in an intensive day which ran from 8am to 7pm! Two teams were formed, one of which was tasked with developing a piece of clinical equipment (in response to a request from a Surgeon at the local University Hospital), while the other was required to develop a sensor network to monitor our building.
