Kirsten Hamilton

Having completed a BEng(Hons) at the University of Strathclyde in Product Design Engineering, she decided to take on a postgrad in an effort to combine her design skills and renewable energy. She was project manager and group coordinator throughout and a large contribution of hers has been the website design, in addition to structuring the methodology and casestudy

Tom McCombes

Tom graduated in 2005 from the University of Glasgow with a BEng (Hons) in Aeronautical Engineering, and as such is a great fan of anything that goes woosh. Or splash. As such, he took an active interest in the fluids and device modelling, and generated the Matlab models used during this investigation. He was under duress at the time, so please don't sue him if they aint correct, and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE use nothing on this site to design aircraft that he might concievably fly in. Ever. At all. Questions, queries, problems with the programs direct to email.

Malcolm also has a strong affinity for the sea, indignation and of course, renewable energy. He is tentatively contemplating further study after completing the MSc, but is also enthusiastic about a vocation in sustainable engineering.
