Alumni Events

The annual Meeting Minds: Alumni Weekend in Oxford always has a strong Engineering component, featuring several events. The highlight is the Jenkin Lecture – where speakers are alumni or current academics.

We also welcome Alumni to the annual Lubbock lecture, our prestigious showcase event in May featuring a high profile keynote speaker.

If you would like to attend any Research seminars, please see details on the individual Research group webpages.

Help current students

The Department continually strives to give Oxford engineering students the best possible experience while at Oxford. Could you help to enrich this even further?

Collaboration with Industry

The Department is active in many areas of engineering research. Much of this is carried out in collaboration with industry. Does your company have R&D needs where research input from the Department would be helpful? The Department is also home to some outstanding resources of engineering expertise and equipment, which can be accessed by external users on appropriate terms. If you or your company have needs of this type, we may be able to help.

Inspire potential engineering students

The Department undertakes outreach activities each year to help encourage secondary school students to study engineering and widen participation. There are many ways Alumni can help inspire potential engineering students. Some examples include visiting schools and speaking at Oxford-hosted outreach events like UNIQ, Headstart and Dragonfly. Can you spare a little of your time to speak about how great engineering is, or do you have other outreach ideas?
