This year, the high-profile lecture is being delivered by Professor William Powrie , a Professor of Geotechnical Engineering and Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton.  Drawing on his impressive portfolio of research into the geotechnical aspects of transport infrastructure, and more broadly railway track and railway systems, he will speak on the topical subject of Affordable Railway Infrastructure for the 21st Century

The lecture starts at 17.15. Prior to this there is an opportunity from 16.00 to find out more about the work within the Department and to meet staff. Following Professor Powrie’s presentation there will be a buffet and drinks reception.
