  • The University of Northampton has recently signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) with Naaya Aayam Multi-Disciplinary Institute (NAMI) in Nepal to jointly deliver two BSc (Hons) programmes.
    Approximately 50 students have already been recruited onto the three-year programmes in Environmental Science or Computing, which will begin in January 2015. Students are also expected to complete a year working in a related industry.
    Both NAMI and the University of Northampton have closely aligned missions in terms of overt commitment to social impact and have worked closely together to design NAMI's brand new facilities in Kathmandu. A significant amount of staff development has been undertaken with the NAMI team, which includes Nepalese alumni of the University of Northampton.
    Dr Arzu Rana Deuba, Chairperson of NAMI, visited the University of Northampton on Wednesday 10 December to formally sign the MoU with Vice Chancellor Nick Petford.
    John Sinclair, Dean of the School of Science and Technology at the University of Northampton, said "The School of Science and Technology is delighted to have formalised its collaboration with NAMI, which has been in development since early 2013.  We are extremely optimistic that more of the University of Northampton's curriculum will be approved for delivery by NAMI in the near future and we see this as an extremely important partnership for the future of both the School of Science and Technology and the University."

Social Analysis of Publications

The Computing staff's network of co-authors, at the University of Northampton, based on the University's  research repository NECTAR - http://nectar.northampton.ac.uk/view/divisions/SSTCT.html on 12th November 2016. The data goes back to 2010.




The data was analysed using the software VOSviewer - http://www.vosviewer.com/ free software for visualising networks. Differences in colours represents, the clusters of publications with those authors picked out by the software. The relative size of the circles is the relative number of publications listed; so for the two biggest circles/hubs it relates to 55 and 34 publications in this time period. Some relatively new authors, to the University but not to research, explains some of the 'islands' and the number of publications within it - it only reflects publications whilst at the University of Northampton.

To dig a little deeper, going to  look at the two biggest 'hubs' through their NECTAR records, so potentially going …

Computer lecturer’s research helps improve the next generation of technology

Taken from: http://www.northampton.ac.uk/news/computer-lecturers-research-helps-improve-the-next-generation-of-technology/ A computing lecturer at the University of Northampton, who is researching into how the efficiency of our everyday devices, such as mobile phones, can be improved, has been awarded the best paper at two recent conferences. Dr Michael Opoku Agyeman has written several journal papers focusing on how the next generation of technology can meet the ever increasing demands from consumers. He was invited to present his work at the 19th Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design in Cyprus and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ 14th International Conference in Paris. Part of his research concentrates on whether several processing elements can be incorporated on a single chip, known as System-On-Chip, to improve the efficiency and speed of the computing systems that we use every day, from mobile phones to video-game consoles and even medical equipment…
