PhD student - John McKay

PhD title: Optimisation of coil winding

John McKay graduated from the University of Strathclyde in 2015 with an MEng in electronics and electrical engineering. He pursued a number of different interests afterwards, from attempting to gain funding from the university to develop his final year project into an actual product/company to pursuing interests within the software and financial industries. 

John eventually went back into engineering and worked for a manufacturing company which manufactured high-speed data communications equipment for Google, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Softbank etc. He then took up the PhD in high-performance electromagnetic coils due to the ever-increasing need for electrification in the world and an interest in electric vehicles and electric flight.
