James Dyson Award 2022
The James Dyson AwardLink opens in a new window is returning for 2022 and we’re excited to be reaching out to engage your students in entering the international design competition.
There are some changes to the award this year, such as an expansion into two new countries - making the award increasingly globally prominent. Excitingly, we are also increasing the national winner prize money to £5000, with £30,000 prizes and global media exposure still available for the international and sustainability winners!
Volunteers are needed for a postdoctoral project about finger motion capture The study will validate a method that will be later used to validate mathematical models of the fingers and create novel, body-powered finger prostheses. The project is within the School of Engineering, as part of an ESPRC funded project.

We can all play a role as Active Bystanders to help put a stop to sexual harassment and abuse. Join the Active Bystander intervention course, so that you can develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to safely challenge unacceptable behaviour. Explore what being an Active Bystander is, how we can challenge harmful social norms, and develop techniques and strategies we can use to intervene when it’s safe to do so. HEAR accredited and certificate of participation (no exam/coursework). Run over 5 sessions and facilitated by the Community Values Education Programme (CVEP). Register for term 2 (starting in week 20).
The Computational Toolkit: HetSys Student-Led Seminar Series
The series includes a programme of talks focussing on key computational skills which are used in everyday research and will feature talks from HetSys PhD students as well as guests from other centres and organisations.
The aim of this series is to create a "computational toolkit" of resources and tutorials, aimed at helping those just beginning in the field, and offering a more practical introduction to computational science as a whole. It will cover a range of topics relevant to someone who’s just taking an interest in computational science as a whole, or a programming tool, but will also include talks on more complex tools.
The website is here: https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/hetsys/outreach/toolkit/ and has details of the upcoming talks.
The series kicks off on the 1st February at 4pm, and will run weekly at that time via YouTube Live.

If you are a student member of the IET, you can take part in an online or telephone interview about how we can improve our communications with student members like you
The IET is conducting research with student members on how we can improve communications about our membership offering and we would love to hear from you.
As part of a wider IET initiative to ensure we remain relevant and useful to our members’ professional needs, we have commissioned an independent research agency, Shift Membership, to conduct interviews on our behalf. The feedback from these interviews will help us review our communication methods and strategies and ensure that you’re getting the best out of your IET membership.
