CST Global Reliability Engineer, Dr. Gio Giuliano, made a poster presentation at the ICT Devices showcase at the University of Glasgow, on 22nd February 2019. The presentation focused on collaborative research projects between CST Global and the University of Glasgow, where students benefit from working within both academic and industrial settings whilst studying.
Gio, a recent recruit from the University of Glasgow, stated, “The close working relationship between the university and CST Global gave me an invaluable research experience. The poster described the key highlights of collaborative projects, focusing on the academic support provided by the university and the technology transferred. I was also able to highlight the underpinning skills I gained relating to the ‘Impact Agenda', which concerns the wider contribution of these projects to the UK economy, society and culture.”
Glasgow University is driving exciting developments in ICT Device applications and systems, which the ICT Devices showcase helps to profile. This includes device design and simulation; materials synthesis; integration technologies; manufacturing processes; and micro and nano-fabrication competence.
Professor Muffy Calder, Vice Principal & Head of the College of Science and Engineering welcomed all visitors. Carol Monaghan MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Photonics and a Member of the House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee, provided a keynote address.
Speakers at the ICT Devices showcase included Achala de Mel, ICT Theme Portfolio Manager, EPSRC; Andrew Shields, Head of Quantum Information Group, Toshiba; Debra Carr, Innovation Partner, DASA; Frazer Anderson, Business Development Director, Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology; and Sophie Lange, Integrated Photonic Expert, Microsoft.
