EPS Inaugural Lecture Series


The College of Engineering and Physical Sciences is running a series of Inaugural Lectures to showcase the leading scientists who are pushing the boundaries in their disciplines. The event marks an individual’s promotion to Professor, but also provides a rare opportunity to hear first-hand about their research.

These events are open to the public, and free of charge. Please click on the below headings to learn more and register for the event.
