STEM Facility & Equipment Showcase & Dinner

The Zone, Ellison Building, Northumberland Road, Northumbria University

Dress: Lounge Suit

Join us at the launch of the University’s new Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) facility and equipment. This £6.7 million investment, co-funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England, will further enhance the University’s research and teaching activity for its STEM students, while helping us to develop even stronger collaborations with industry. 

The significantly enhanced facilities and new state-of-the-art equipment – including a bespoke Engine Test Cell facility; wind tunnel; scaled tutorial mock-ups of working automotive systems; 50-tonne test frame and actuator; scanning electron microscope; and improved 3D printing facilities - complement the earlier investment in the University’s Think Physics initiative, to improve progression to STEM by under-represented groups.  

Our keynote speaker, Professor Dame Ann Dowling, is a non-executive board member of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.  She is President of the Royal Academy of Engineering and Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Cambridge.  Dame Ann has served on a number of industry and government advisory committees, chairing a review of business-university research collaboration and the Royal Society/Royal Academy of Engineering study on nanotechnology. She is also a Honorary Graduate of Northumbria University.
