22 Lectures Delivered in Malaysia!28th October 2013
I have just returned from a fortnight's intensive teaching visit to the University of Southampton's Malaysia Campus (USMC), at EduCity@Iskandar Nusjaya.
The EEE Students and I at USMC
ECS welcomed our inital intake of 10 students onto our top-quality Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) degree course, which has been offered for the first time this autumn at USMC. The EEE degree joins Southampton's undergraduate MEng in Mechanical Engineering that enrolled its first students at USMC in 2012.
Our four year 2+2 MEng EEE degree will see the students spend the first two years studying in Malaysia before transferring to Southampton, UK, for the final two years. The EEE programme at USMC is identical to that offered at the Southampton campus, including the duplication of the outstanding ECS undergraduate laboratory facilities in Malaysia. As well as core EEE staff based at USMC, many other academic staff from Southampton will be visiting USMC over the coming year to teach on the course.
At the campus, I gave 22 lectures to students in 9 days, primarily on Digital Electronics, as part of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree that we are delivering there for the first time this year.

Energy Harvesting Network Launched1st March 2010
The Energy Harvesting Network, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, was launched on Monday 01 March. The Network is managed by Steve Beeby and Geoff Merrett in the University of Southampton's School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS), and will bring together UK academic and industrial researchers and end-users of energy harvesting (EH) technology.
The Network will define new research challenges and stimulate collaborative research proposals. It will also en... [more]
Autonomous Street Light Simulator21st February 2014
StreetlightSim has been produced as part of Sei Ping Lau's, a member of my research team, PhD research project. The simulator is an open source streetlight simulation environment based on the well-known OMNet++ and SUMO tools. It features a customisable road traffic pattern, described by the road traffic distribution according to different times of day and annual average daily traffic flow (AADF), and can be easily extended to different streetlight networks using OpenStreetMap and JOSM.
