Oxford Royale 2023 Summer School Programme announced

University of Bath Engineering Guest Lecture

On 8 November 2022, the Higher Education Office will be inviting Dr Mirella Di Lorenzo, a senior lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Faculty Associate Dean of Internationalisation, to put together an engineering-focused taster lecture. The topic of the lecture is, “A sustainable world: how engineers can help protect our planet with green technologies”.

Global climate change is one of the greatest environmental threats facing the world. Human activities such as the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation over the past 150 years have led to the emissions of massive amounts of greenhouse gases (e.g. carbon dioxide and methane). These gases are increasing the amount of heat trapped in the atmosphere, leading to extremely fast changes in climate with severe consequences to our planet. This lecture provides an overview of our research into sustainable technologies for a greener planet. Examples include: alternative energy systems, energy efficient building materials, environmental sensors, environmental bioremediation, sustainable water and sanitation, sustainable food production and smart agriculture, and bioplastics.

This lecture aims to provide Bangkok Prep students with an opportunity to experience a university-style Engineering lesson, particularly at the University of Bath. All students and staff are invited to attend this lecture. If you are keen, please register using the QR code.
