Last week saw the Keystone team pay an exciting visit to our friends at UWS Paisley Campus where we were warmly welcomed by Associate Vice Principal (Research), Professor Milan Radosavljevic and a leadership team of academics from across the school of Computing, Engineering and Life Science.
With over 100 years’ experience in training engineers and science professionals, the school offers vocationally-relevant courses and we were truly inspired by the evident dedication to ensuring their students leave UWS with qualifications which anticipate industry needs.
Insight into 5G Technology
The engineering courses are designed to align with industry requirements and their delivery is supported by excellent on-campus facilities and the programmes are tuned into industry, professional bodies and other institutions.
The computing courses teach tomorrow’s technologies today thanks to offering access to high-quality computing and state-of-the-art software systems as well as tried and tested in-demand technologies such as Oracle, CIW, Adobe, CISCO, SAP and Microsoft. The Keystone team gained first-hand insight into this thanks to a presentation on the research happening now on the successful deployment of 5G technology.
This pioneering research means that remote surgery, driverless cars and smooth mobile HD streaming could all become a reality. UWS computing researchers Jose Alcaraz-Calero and Qi Wang are the technical leads on the SELFNET project, which is developing a ‘self-healing’ mobile network. The new network is 1,000 times faster than 4G, delivering dramatic improvements to quality of user experience, reliability and security – and unlocking a wealth of new online opportunities.
Thin Films, Sensors and Imaging
The physical and chemical sciences courses are also designed around industry needs and UWS graduates can be found in leading positions in companies such as BAE Systems, Fujitsu, Motorola, Nikon, GSK, Sellafield Ltd. Our regular readers will know that our sister company, Key FM, also employs a UWS KTP Associate.
Keystone are providing innovative workplace and wellbeing solutions to global companies and working with partners internationally. This world of possibilities means there are exciting times ahead for the relationship between Keystone and the team at UWS.
