Engineering Parents Evening

Engineering Parents' Evening

Meet our staff and students and discover engineering.

Thursday 12th November 2020

Welcome to Engineering Parents' Evening

Engineering has the power to change, evolve and improve. It can secure our digital futures, innovate in the use of pioneering health techniques and improve our chances in the fight against climate change, but the discipline needs you. Without students working across maths and science, blending a creative approach with academic knowledge, future problems will go unsolved. Hear from academics and Students about how we can start to improve the world we live in through engineering.
