CDT-EI staff and students attended the 9th and final conference of the Innovative Electronic Manufacturing Research Centre "IeMRC" at Loughborough University, UK.
IeMRC (and CDT-EI) Director Professor Paul Conway welcomed a full-house audience and reflected upon the 10-year history of the IeMRC, from its origins as one of the Manufacturing Research Centres set up and supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The final presentation of the day came from Professor Marc Desmulliez, Head of Sensors, Signals and Systems at Heriot Watt University and CDT-EI co-Director. Prfofessor Desmulliez discussed the design, simulation and test of a novel microwave applicator used to cure paste materials in microelectronics packaging in a paper entitled: “From curing to sensing using microwave energy: a journey across several manufacturing capability readiness levels.”
CDT-EI students were able to showcase their work by presenting posters during the breaks and networking sessions. Below are images of the posters prepared about the group projects undertaken during semester 1 with Renishaw (left) and Siemens (right).
