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.

Seminar Given at CENS, UCLA30th July 2008
I have spent a couple of days in the Center for Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS) at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in the USA. It's been very interesting, and great to see the place where so much excellent WSN research is being done.
During the visit, Professor Neil White and I gave a seminar to CENS researchers on 'Energy Aware Remote Sensing', reflecting on the work that is being undertaken by researchers within the Electronic Systems and Devices (ESD) group and the Perv... [more]
I Provide 'Expert Advice' on Haptic Technology8th October 2013
This morning I was contacted by a journalist from 'The Engineer' magazine, who was writing a piece about research at Bristol University on the use of ultrasound as a tactile technology. The technology, which I saw demonstrated at a conference a few years ago, uses inaudible ultrasound waves to give the sensation of touch to the fingertips, and by using an array of transducers, can target the sensation at particular locations. My comments on the technology included:
"'Touchless haptics is prob... [more]
