Engineering@Southampton: Reunion Experience 2014

Published: 5 June 2014

As part of the University of Southampton’s Reunion Experience 2014, we're welcoming back alumni to a special engineering showcase on Saturday 12 July from 10am to 1pm.

Alumni from the years 1954, 1964, 1974, 1984, 1994 and 2004 are warmly invited back to celebrate the anniversary of their graduation. There will be the opportunity to tour our world-class facilities, find out more about our current research, share memories and catch-up with old friends. Refreshments will be available.

Register for the Reunion Experience 2014.

Cutting-edge facilities

Facilities from Electronics and Computer Science and from the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment will be on display: our interdisciplinary Cleanroom Complex; the wind tunnel; the rapid prototyping facility; Erica the rhino; the μ-Vis and X-Ray Imaging Centre; and the anechoic and reverberation chambers.

The Tony Davies High Voltage Laboratory will also be open for tours on the day, but these must be pre-booked separately.

Pioneering researchers

Professor William Powrie, Dean of Engineering and the Environment will be attending on the day, while Professor Dame Wendy Hall, Dean of Physical Sciences and Engineering will be taking part in the evening dinner, organised by the University's Alumni Office.

There will also be a rare opportunity to hear from two pioneering researchers: Professor Sir David Payne and Dr Reuben Wilcock.

Professor Sir David Payne is one of the UK's most eminent scientists and one of the world's most cited academics. His discoveries in the 1970s and 1980s directly underpin today's Internet infrastructure, and his work continues to help ensure its long-term stability.

Dr Reuben Wilcock is an award-winning academic and engaging speaker, whose most recent enterprise MyJoulo, won the British Gas Connecting Homes Startup Competition 2013.

Venue: Highfield Campus, University of Southampton
