PIPaL: JISC BCE at Loughborough

Interesting uses for existing data #2

Here’s another Wordle map, this time looking at the public data on staff members’ home pages from our Engineering Faculty.  Although the data itself is fairly unstructured, a decision had been made across the Faculty to use consistent section headings.  Another five line Perl script pulls out all of the info in the “Broad Interests and Expertise” section.  Not surprisingly given Loughborough’s background, systems engineering looms large in this.  It’s very interesting to see that renewables and in particular renewable energy do not feature particularly highly as yet.  We can expect that this will change quite drastically over the next few years, particularly with the formation of the Sustainability Research School.
