Limitless: An interview with Professor Yiannis Ventikos
Publication date: 4 April 2014
Yiannis Ventikos is the Kennedy Professor of Mechanical Engineering and the Head of UCL Mechanical Engineering. He moved to UCL from Oxford where he was a Professor of Engineering Science and a Fellow at Wadham College, since December 2003. Before that, he has worked or studied in Greece, France, the USA and Switzerland.
Prof Ventikos’ research focuses on transport phenomena and fluid mechanics, as they are applied to biomedical engineering problems, energy, innovative industrial processes and bio-complexity.
New device for four-layered macromolecular particles invented
Publication date: 27 March 2014
New process could allow for treatment of four diseases simultaneously.
A new device that allows the mass production of four-layered macromolecular particles and fibres has been invented by a team at UCL Mechanical Engineering. This electrohydrodynamic (EHD) device, which contains four coaxial nozzles that simultaneously deliver four polymer solutions under an applied voltage, can revolutionize the concept of polypharmacy and biomedical engineering applications.

On the road again: UCL Racing 2014 seeks drivers
Publication date: 30 January 2014
UCL Racing, the team of UCL Mechanical Engineering students which designs and builds a new racing car each year, is looking for drivers to join the 2014 team. The team is launching a competition to find the best student racing drivers. The top four drivers will compete at Formula Student, an international motor racing competition for universities from around the world, held at Silverstone each summer.
