The 2017 Alumni Weekend at the Department of Engineering Science – a historic day…

The 2017 Department of Engineering Science Alumni Weekend made history with Professor Ekaterina Shamonina - the first female speaker to give the Jenkin lecture in 30 years. Over 185 engineering alumni as well as those from other subjects and non-alumni were treated to the annual Jenkin Lecture on the fascinating subject of ‘metamaterials’. The day’s programme also included the first lecture given by the winner of the Oxford Engineering Alumni (OEA) Award, an update from the Head of Department on the 2020 Vision for Engineering Science in Oxford, this year’s Oxford Engineering Alumni (OEA) Annual General Meeting, and the presentation of the special Matthew Greenwood Outreach Award.

The Matthew Greenwood Outreach Award

A new award has been established for a 4th Year Oxford Engineering Ambassador who has been exemplary in engineering outreach initiatives. The award has been called the Matthew Greenwood Award in memory of the St Edmund Hall Engineering Science undergraduate who tragically passed away last year after a fierce battle with cancer. Matt was a highly committed Oxford Engineering Ambassador, and was even said to have been enthusing about the transformative power of an engineering degree from his hospital bed.

The Royal Academy of Engineering Colin Campbell Mitchell Award

The Royal Academy of Engineering is to present this year’s Colin Campbell Mitchell Award to three Oxford-based researchers who have developed an innovative, non-contact health monitoring technology capable of observing a patient’s vital signs via a standard digital video camera. The team, who work for Oxehealth, a company spun out from Professor Tarassenko’s lab in the Department’s Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME), will be presented with the prize at the Academy’s Research Forum on 4 September. Before joining Oxehealth, two of the three award winners, Oliver Gibson and Nic Dunkley, were DPhil students in the IBME.
