FPT Industrial, brand of CNH Industrial dedicated to the design, production and sale of powertrains for on and off-road vehicles, marine and power generation applications, has purchased Dolphin N2 and its revolutionary recuperated split-cycle engine – developed by scientists and engineers at the University of Brighton and Ricardo.
The engine is being hailed as extremely efficient, making it more comparable to a fuel cell than to a traditional engine. It also produces near-zero emissions of harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) – a world first that has been pioneered by the University.
University of Brighton experts have helped develop a solar-powered car.
Built by students from Ardingly College and Ifield Community College in West Sussex, the vehicle has been shipped to Australia where it is taking part in a 3,000 kilometer outback challenge. Read More →
Ground breaking new engine technology, based on world-leading research at the University of Brighton, is opening the way to production of the worlds’ first near zero-emission heavy internal combustion engine.
The CryoPower Cool Combustion process enables recovery of otherwise wasted exhaust heat which is then cooled via the injection of a small amount of liquid nitrogen. The liquid nitrogen acts as both a coolant and an additional source of energy, reducing emissions and improving fuel efficiency.
To help you get the best start as a student here, we’ve put together some online activities called Hit The Ground Running.
Taking part in this programme isn’t compulsory and it’s not a test, it’s just a good way to prepare yourself for your studies and get to know your way around our online learning platform, studentcentral.
The activities will include tips for getting ready to study with us and help put you in touch with current students who can answer any questions you may have about the uni or your course.
You’ll be able to access this area the day after you enrol online, by logging in to studentcentral and clicking on the Hit The Ground Running banner on the home page.
Raymond (Ray) Jones has come back to the University of Brighton – 60 years after graduating.
The 81-year-old contacted the University out of the blue and the Students’ Union responded by inviting him for a day’s tour of the campuses during which Raymond declared: “My years in Brighton were the best of my life.”
Ray graduated from what was then Brighton Technical College near The Level in 1958 with a Diploma in Engineering, and OND in Mechanical Engineering and a First Class Intermediate and Second Class Final City and Guilds Machine Shop Engineering.
