Open Day 2003 (Friday 23 May 2003)
The day's programme of events ran as follows:
From 2.00 p.m. displays of undergraduate project work were on view in Lecture Room 3. A competition was held for the best display (in various categories), with prizes totalling £400 in value on offer from the SOUE; the panel of judges were all graduates of the Department from the 80's and 90's, now engineers in industry.
Professor Tarassenko started the afternoon with a description of the Department's plans for an Institute of Biomedical Engineering, which was followed by two talks by members of the Department describing research in this area; this reflected the theme of the main Maurice Lubbock Memorial Lecture, which followed after tea.
- Dr Stephen Duncan : Controlling ultrasound treatment for cancer
- Professor L Tarassenko : Home monitoring of chronic conditions using GPRS mobile phone technology
- 29th Maurice Lubbock Memorial Lecture
Dr Paul Drayson : Building a world-class company from Oxford Engineering Science: the PowderJect Story
The day ended with a buffet supper.
