When Stan Owers became Dr Stan Owers, this lecture was initiated.
It was to be held annually to address the issues surrounding manufacturing industry and education. This third in the series was a really challenging event with Jeff Roche, a 2nd year undergraduate giving us a frank review of his learning trajectory so far. Raj Rajagopal, IET trustee and long experienced in the world of manufacturing added his global perspective, pointing out that where the design and manufacture goes, the research and development follow.
A vibrant discussion ensued and a real sense of action required to improve the awareness amongst school students of how industry works.
