Engineering Science students invited to design for CERN’s Large Hadron Collider

In April, eleven Engineering Science students in their third year were invited to the CERN laboratory in Geneva to present their ideas for new vacuum chamber designs for the experiments of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Their design objectives were to propose alternatives to beryllium – the material used for some of the existing experimental vacuum chambers. Beryllium (chemical element with the symbol Be and atomic number 4) is toxic, expensive, difficult to machine and join, and can have associated health problems if personnel were exposed to the element in a particle form caused by damage to a chamber.

YASA Motors wins UK’s Best Enterprise Award

YASA Motors has been named the UK’s Best Enterprise in the Lloyds TSB/Telegraph Enterprise Awards and wins £50,000. Dr Tim Woolmer, YASA’s Founder and Chief Technology Officer, invented the motor for his DPhil project at Oxford University’s Department of Engineering Science. The motor is lighter, smaller and, ultimately, cheaper to produce than its rivals.
