In brief...

The Department continues to burst at the seams. To relieve this situation in the short term, a lease has been taken out on a Unit in the Science Park, which now houses the Centre for Molecular Materials for Photonics and Electronics (CMMPE) led by Professors Harry Coles and Bill Crossland within the Electrical Engineering Division and with collaboration from other departments. The centre was opened in February by the Minister for Science, Lord Sainsbury and the University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Alec Broers.

A short term lease has also been taken out on offices in Keynes House on Trumpington Street, providing a home for the team working on the MPhil for Sustainable Development and some members of the Engineering Design Centre. The top floor of the new Gates Building, West Cambridge, has also been colonised by researchers in Communications Engineering, led by Professors Andy Hopper and Ian White.

Congratulations go to Professor Ann Dowling who has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, to Professor Andy Hopper on the award of the Royal Academy of Engineering's Silver Medal and to the ten undergraduates who were awarded the RAE's Leadership awards (a record number).

Professor Keith Glover, who became Head of Department last October, has set up a number of strategic working groups tasked with an extensive review of both research and teaching.

Dr David Holburn is the new Honorary Secretary of the CUEA, and the Annual Conference will be held in the Department on Saturday 27th September.
