Each SEAHA project is aligned with one of the three SEAHA training streams: ‘Materials’, ‘Environment’ or ‘Digital’. The streams and strands conceptualise the framework of skills development within SEAHA.
In practice, every SEAHA project follows one of the three streams. This is reflected primarily in the selection of MRes modules, but also leads to the formation of groups of projects looking at particular aspects of heritage science, and leading to useful synergy, particularly in the delivery of Group Projects.
The SEAHA Stream Coordinators are Ian Freestone for the Materials Stream, Heather Viles for the Environment Stream and Roger Evans for the Digital Stream. Their role is dual: they can advise on MRes module selection and organise the SEAHA Group Projects.
Students with diverse backgrounds enrol in SEAHA in one of the three streams. During the first year (the MRes year), the students carry out a Data Creation Group Project as part of Module 4, exploring aspects of this strand.
During the second year, the Group Project focuses on the Data to Knowledge strand and during the third year on the Knowledge to Enterprise strand. In this way, all SEAHA students have the possibility to explore (and learn) different interdisciplinary aspects of heritage science and engineering.
