Alumni memories and news

As alumni send in photographs and memories from their time at Birmingham, we will update this section.  Send your photographs and memories to us at eps-community@contacts.bham.ac.uk

Phil Arundel (1968 BSc Mechanical Engineering, 1971 PhD Mechanical Engineering): "I particularly remember the lovely campus, the space provided by the adjoining playing fields and all the 'new' buildings."

R. Peter York (1963 BSc Civil Engineering): "Great to commence studies in brand new building - by canal.  I must have been one of the few engineers in the University choir, led by Prof. Anthony Lewis.  The experience has kept me singing for nearly 50 years with the Royal Choral Society."

Leslie Castle (1988 BSc Mathematics): "Founders on a Friday night."

Peter Davies (1954 BSc Mechanical Engineering): "1. Visit of Greer Garson to talk in the Students Union.  2. Roller skating each Saturday morning in the Phys. Ed. department.  3. The newly-opened Mech Eng department facilities.  4. Camps at Lake Coniston on vacation (summer)."

Brian Orange (1968 BSc Chemical Engineering): " I much enjoyed my 3 years in Edgbaston.  I started in the brand new Lake Hall for 2 years, before taking a flat with 4 others down the Bristol Road.  One of my sons, Simon, did 3 years for a BSc in Biochemistry and subsequently an MSc in Computer Science.  From 1976 to 2011 when I retired, I was the owner and MD of a chemical distribution company based in Winchester called Orange Chemicals Ltd."

Ken Ball (1973 MSc Thermodynamics): "Enjoyed my year with the group under leadership of Prof Frank Bannister and Dr Rayleigh and relaxing in the Post Grad Hut."
