Open Day 2008 (Thursday 15 May 2008)
The day's programme of events ran as follows:
During the day undergraduate project work was on view in Thom Building Lecture Room 3. A competition was held for the best displays (in various categories), with prizes on offer from the Society of Oxford University Engineers and various industrial sponsors. The competition judges were all graduates of the Department from the past 20 years, now engineers in industry; once again the standard was very high.
There was also a centenary photography competition, with the theme of "Engineering Science: capture the essence of engineering in an image", which attracted some stunning entries.
The afternoon's lectures began with two talks by members of the Department, describing applications of biomedical and information engineering respectively in personalised healthcare. This was followed by tea and the prize giving for the 4th year project exhibition and centenary photography competition, then the 34th Maurice Lubbock Memorial Lecture given by Lord Browne of Madingley, President of the Royal Academy of Engineering:
- Dr Yiannis Ventikos : Personalised Healthcare: The role of Biomedical Engineering in Disease and Treatment Modelling
- Professor John Fox : Personalised Healthcare: The role of Information Engineering in Clinical Decision Making
- 34th Maurice Lubbock Memorial Lecture
Lord Browne of Madingley : On Being an Engineer
The day ended with a buffet supper in the Holder Common Room.
