‘Engineered by US’

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn spent a fascinating afternoon at The University of Sheffield learning about their ‘Engineered by US’ exhibition and their Science, Engineering and Technology departments.

 

The ‘Engineered by US’ exhibition has been designed by the university’s Faculty of Engineering and is currently on show in the Western Bank Library Exhibition Gallery. The exhibition tells the story of the past, highlighting Sheffield’s world fame as an engineering centre and a place of manufacturing heritage, but also showcases present and future projects in the biomedical engineering, sustainability and energy fields.  

 

Meg was particularly interested in the presentation around microscopic bubble technology which may revolutionise chemical engineering. Micro bubbles are considered by many to be one of the holy grails of chemical engineering, as this technology will dramatically increase the rate of transfer of gas into a liquid over conventional sized bubbles and do so with no energy penalty. The technology has the potential to dramatically reduce the energy demands of essential chemical processes such as those employed in water purification, wastewater treatment, biodiesel manufacture and carbon sequestration.

 

After the tour of the exhibition Meg took part in a roundtable discussion with a number of professors and doctors from the university. They discussed current and future programmes and female participation in science, engineering and technology, a topic that Meg is extremely passionate about.

 

Meg said:

 

“It was a fantastically interesting and educational visit. I hope that I can work with the university in the future and encourage more women to take part in science, engineering and technology courses and employment.

 

 I would encourage anyone to visit the exhibition even if you haven’t been interested in science before. It’s truly impressive to see what is being produced by students and staff at the University of Sheffield.”
