Open Day 2004 (Friday 21 May 2004)
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 judges were all graduates of the Department from the 80's and 90's, now engineers in industry.
There was also the opportunity during the afternoon to see the final stages of the one-week Coursework Modules undertaken by the second year students, on Mechanical CAD, Medical Engineering, Biochemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Control Engineering and Computational Mathematics.
The afternoon's lectures started with two talks by members of the Department, describing research on Information Engineering (reflecting the theme of the main lecture), followed by tea and the Maurice Lubbock Memorial Lecture:
- Dr P M Newman : Autonomous Navigation In Unknown Environments
- Dr Stephen Roberts : Information, Complexity and Learning
- 30th Maurice Lubbock Memorial Lecture
Sir David Brown FREng FIEE : Engineering in the Information Age
The day ended with a buffet supper in the Holder Common Room.
