Welcome to the School of Engineering Seminar Listing. Note that this a School-wide list and not an Institute-specific list. This listing mainly comprises two types of seminars:

  1. Keynote Seminar Series: Given by distinguished staff, visitors and invited guests. The agenda of the talks is broad dealing with the current state-of-art on a topic and can encompass science, education, society, policy, government or industry. 
  2. Envisage Seminar Series: Given by new members of School (academic staff, Fellows, and post-doctoral staff). This series is designed to act as a springboard to new staff to communicate their research to the wider School audience and initiate collaborations with other staff. 
  3. Inaugural Lectures: These are seminal lectures on the topic given by Professors or Chairs 

If you have a question about this list, please contact:

Each talk has an organiser. Please contact them in the first instance if you have a query about a particular talk. Only contact one of the people below if you have a question about the list, such as whether your talk or series could be added.
