Engineering & Technology
Engineering & Technology in Action (new)
LPMR Tuesdays 1000-1200 (4 sessions: 17th Sep, 1st Oct, 5th Nov, 3rd Dec)
Convener: Tony Wheeler
Technology is part of our everyday life and engineering advances continue to facilitate improvements for us in many ways. This Group will look behind engineering and technology projects in the news to better understand how they work and the challenges faced in implementing them. At each meeting a member or invited guest speaker with appropriate professional knowledge or experience will give a 1 hour talk on a particular project which will be followed by a 30 minute group discussion. We hope to look at a wide range of technologies such energy, transport, water supply, urban infrastructure, application of computers and biomedical engineering. Group members will be encouraged to suggest projects for future meetings but need not feel obliged to make a presentation themselves.
