EEE videos

There are lots of exciting things happening in our department including lab sessions, student projects, industry placements and cutting edge research . Have a browse amongst our collection of videos to showcase the breadth and range of activities that EEE are involved in.

Discover Scalextron!

In his 3rd Year during his MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering with a Year in Industry mark created this video to present his project based on a Scalextric.   

These types of videos are part of all our degree courses as they encourage you to think of creative ways to present your projects in a way that despite the project's complexity the video can be understood by a general audience.  This is a key soft skill you will need when you apply for jobs.

Change needed for the IoT to progress

This video was made by Stephen (PhD EEE student) for the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council's (EPSRC) competition for innovative research undertaken by PhD students, Connected Nation Pioneers 2018.

It aims to explain to a non-specialist audience how newly developed modulating antennas work, and their potential to reduce the currently growing cost and energy consumption of wireless transmitters used in mobile communications.

A 90 seconds tutorial about Avalanche Multiplication

Final year EEE student Chi Cheng created a 90 second video explaining what Avalanche Multiplication is and how and why it is so important to modern life.

These types of videos are part of all our degree courses as they encourage you to think of creative ways to present your projects in a way that despite the project's complexity the video can be understood by a general audience.  This is a key soft skill you will need when you apply for jobs.

Explore our undergraduate teaching Clean Room

As an undergraduate student with us you will spend time in our Clean Room building your own semiconductor devices.  It has been designed to replicate the clean rooms used in industry and as such the air in the lab is filtered to remove dirt and debris that could affect the micro circuits you will work on.  This is a specialised facility that isn't found in many universities and one that we are proud to have. 

Take it apart to find out how it works!

We believe Engineering is about understanding how things work and what better way to do this than to take them apart!  Dr. Gavin Williams leads this First Year undergraduate lab where you get the opportunity to get hands on with everyday electrical items. Watch the video to see a group of EEE students reverse engineering a printer.

Want to build a robot?

Matt designed and built a novel multi-directional robot for his PhD with EEE based on what he had learnt on his MEng Electronic Engineering degree.  He hopes to create a spin off company based on the robot to commercialise the technology involved. 

Year in Industry at Rolls-Royce

We offer a Year in Industry option for all our undergraduate degrees which allows you to get experience of working in an engineering company to help you decide which sector or direction your future career may take.  Callum spent 14 months working at Rolls-Royce in Birmingham and in this video shares his experience of his placement.

Our UKESF Headstart Summer School 2019

We hosted our first Summer School last summer where around 60 Y12 students who had an interest in Engineering came for a 5 day residential.  Staying at our fantastic student Halls of Residences 'The Edge' they enjoyed a full agenda including mini lectures and a project to build and programme their own robots.  Watch the video to see what they got up to and if this is something you would be interested in doing visit www.etrust.org.uk/headstart.

What happens on EEE Open Days?

If you are interested in Engineering and think EEE could be for you we would love to see you at one of our Open Days.  As this video shows you will get to meet our academics, take a look at our purpose built labs and lecture theatres and have a look around campus. 

To find out when our next Open Day is click here.  If you can't make any of the dates please email g.williams@sheffield.ac.uk to discuss other options.
