On Thursday 6th November, Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Head of
College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Professor Richard Williams
welcomed more than 70 alumni, to an exclusive reception at The Tower Club,
This was an evening of celebration, featuring a talk from Professor Stephen Brammer, Director of Faculty at Birmingham Business School and an opportunity to thank Doreen Liu and Professor K.K. Phua of World Scientific Publishing for their extraordinary donation of e-books to the new University of Birmingham Library, valued at over £1m.
The evening was punctuated with lively conversation, good food and good company. Photos from the evening can be found below.
The University has a dedicated Facebook group focused on enabling our alumni in South East Asia to remain connected and we are keen to actively increase the range and volume of our alumni activity in Singapore. To do this, we need active local volunteers who would be happy to offer some time to support us in our aims! If you live in the area, please keep in touch so that we can keep you informed and please do pass details to any other alumni with whom you are in contact. If you are interested in becoming more involved in supporting the delivery of local alumni activity, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get in touch!
Finally, we are also considering launching a quarterly e-newsletter for alumni in South East Asia, which will highlight areas of key strength, news from the alumni and student associations in South East Asia, volunteer opportunities, details of relevant details of future events and other relevant news. We would welcome your thoughts on this and if you have any feedback or would like to discuss the University’s commitment to the region, please email
