Civil Engineering Alumnus becomes Royal Academy of Engineering Enterprise Fellow

by

A recent alumnus of the Civil and Environmental Engineering department has been named as one of the Fellows for the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Ent

The Enterprise Fellowship is a 12-month programme for creative and entrepreneurial engineers to help with the acceleration of innovative ideas that are at an early stage of development.

It offers equity-free funding, an extended programme of mentorship and coaching, and access to a community of engineering mentors and alumni.

One of the Fellows, Will Dubin, is a recent graduate from the Civil Engineering MEng course and the founder of ManholeMetrics – a sensor and analytics start-up, who have developed a low-cost technology designed to prevent wastewater flooding.

The technology uses ultra-low-cost, long-life sensors mounted in manholes to collect data from sewers and drains, giving real-time flood warnings and allowing for insights into the correlation between weather data and water levels to predict flooding and identify blockages.

Will was joined in being awarded the fellowship by three researchers from different departments within Imperial.
