Programme of Events

From 2.00 p.m. displays of undergraduate project work will be on view in Lecture Room 3. A competition will be held for the best display (in various categories), with prizes totalling £400 in value on offer from the Society of Oxford University Engineers. Once again the standard of projects is expected to be very high - in recent years our undergraduates have won a number of national awards for their project work.

There will be 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. There will also be the opportunity to visit research groups in the department: please feel free to approach individual academics in the department to make arrangements. Details of the Department's research activities can be found on the web site

In the refurbished Lecture Theatre 1, there will be two talks by members of the Department, describing research on Information Engineering. This reflects the theme of the main Lubbock Lecture.
