I am working with Dr Steve Beeby developing a miniature silicon pressure sensor in partnership with an industrial sponsor. This sponsorship means that I am able to work towards achieving a functional, commercially viable product at the end of my studies. Hopefully this practical aspect, along with the excellent reputation of the School, will stand me in good stead when I venture out into industry.
