Engineering at Wadham

We welcome graduate engineers studying either within the department itself, or working on interdisciplinary projects at other departments and Centres for Doctoral Training in the University. Our Engineering Fellows are actively involved in several of these, including the CDT in Healthcare Innovation and we have a tradition of high impact research in biomedical engineering. We are also closely associated with the CDT in Autonomous Intelligent Machines and Systems and the CDT in Synthetic Biology, and host students from other CDTs linked to Engineering (including Gas Turbines and Biomedical Imaging). Graduate engineers play a prominent role in the life of the Middle Common Room, and are encouraged to interact with the 30-strong undergraduate engineering population, not least on our annual Engineering Research day and at our subject dinner in Hall.

The Tutors

There are three Tutorial Fellows in Engineering - Dr Mark Thompson (Mechanical), Dr Ekaterina Shamonina (Electrical) and Dr Alfonso Castrejón-Pita.
