Further European success for Multimedia Technology & Design students

Liz Canning and Paul Turner, two recently graduated Multimedia Technology & Design students from the University of Kent, have won the EUROPRIX Top Talent Award (TTA) Quality Seal 2006.

This is the second time Kent has celebrated success in the EUROPRIX TTA, with former student Liz Valentine winning the EUROPRIX Multimedia Top Talent Thesis Award in 2004.

The EUROPRIX TTA is Europe’s largest competition for students and young professionals who work on innovative projects in the field of e-contents and design. The Quality Seal award recognises outstanding innovation and creativity in multimedia production and is a recognition of the best in multimedia projects, both student and professional, across Europe. It is also awarded to projects which clearly show innovative features and creative ingenuity.

Liz Canning won her Quality Seal award for Confused Zoo, an innovative multimedia application aimed at stage 2 pupils which raises awareness of endangered species in an engaging and entertaining manner, while Paul Turner won his for Creative Toolbox, an online design resource for creative individuals in all areas of design, from 2D and print, to web and new media, to 3D and animation. The Toolbox provides easy access to articles, tutorials, reviews, news, resources and support on relevant topics. It includes a large amount of interactivity, with users having the ability to store content from the site within their own personal toolbox.

Ania Bobrowicz, Lecturer in Multimedia Technology & Design, said: ‘We are absolutely delighted that Liz and Paul have won such a prestigious award, with Liz’s Confused Zoo and Paul’s Creative Toolbox also ranked in the top 10 percent of all EUROPRIX entries this year. Both projects are very good examples of the creative use of technology and innovation stemming from our course.’

An extremely popular and successful course, the BSc in Multimedia Technology & Design at the University of Kent provides a multidisciplinary education for students who seek professional careers in the field of multimedia technology and design. Taught by a team of experts in design, animation, film-making, photography, web technology and programming, graduates are well-equipped to enter such fields as multimedia authoring, web development, web mastering, television, film, electronic games, mobile communications, electronic commerce, internet publishing, computer programming and network management.

Alternatively, they may undertake postgraduate study in courses such as Kent’s MSc in Computer Animation.

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
