At our Inaugural Lecture in 2017 we hosted a brilliant talk by Professor Dame Ann Patricia Dowling titled 'Towards a Silent Aircraft'. 

In 2018 Professor Lord Kumar Bhattacharyya delivered a lecture entitled ‘The mobility revolution: How innovation in automotive energy systems, intelligent vehicles and service customization will transform how we travel.’
