The inaugural lecture of Stefano Brandani, Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Edinburgh, will be the closing event of Chemical Engineering's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
Prof Brandani, right, who is a member of the SCCS Directorate, will give a lecture entitled Energy, Exergy and How We Can Achieve a Low Carbon Economy. He will explore the challenge of improving quality of life and economic prosperity while minimising our impact on the environment. He will also draw on examples of research carried out at the university's School of Engineering, which show possible approaches to decarbonising our economy.
The appointment of the first Chair of Chemical Technology in 1955 marked the beginning of Chemical Engineering at the university. The discipline has since grown steadily and now ranks 421 undergraduate students and 21 academics.
Prof Brandani’s lecture will be held at 5.30pm on Monday, 19 September in the Swann Lecture Theatre, Michael Swann Building, on the King’s Buildings campus. University staff and their guests are welcome to attend, and the event is also open to the public. Attendees should email Louise Farquharson to confirm - firstname.lastname@example.org
