The Official Society for Electrical and Mechanical Engineering (EME) Students at Strathclyde University

The EME Society bridges the gap between the five year groups while promoting industrial engagement, helping students to attain scholarships and industrial placements while broadening their engineering experience. We also arrange a variety of events for our members including technical visits, inter-year competitions, sporting events and networking events.

The Course

Global warming issues, increased demands on energy sources and a greater awareness of environmental and health issues have accelerated the need for energy efficiency and conservation. The need for renewable energy sources, smaller carbon footprints, more recycling, pollution monitoring and emission control have added to the challenges we face.  To meet these challenges, a diversity of skills and technology is required in the creation and development of new products and services.

Mechanical, electrical, computing, microprocessor, sensor and control elements all form an integral part of system operations and are essential to meet the increasingly stringent requirements of modern society. Examples include renewable energy generation from wind and wave power, nuclear energy generation, hybrid-electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles, fuel cell technology, and efficient and safe operation of aircraft.

The EME course is specially designed to equip the engineer of the future with the skills and depth of specialist training required to meet the challenges of the 21st century. (Adapted from the Strathclyde University webpage here.)
