Lecture 4: "The Greatest Mechanick of this Present Age": Dr Robert Hooke and the Origins of Engineer
Dr Allan Chapman on '"The Greatest Mechanick of this Present Age": Dr Robert Hooke and the Origins of Engineering Science in Oxford'. "When his Oxford friend, John Aubrey, described Hooke as the "Greatest Mechanick" of the Age, he acknowledged Hooke's genius as an Experimentalist. For Hooke the whole of nature was a great machine or engine in motion, the deepest truths of which could be uncovered by means of ingeniously-contrived instruments. For in the 1650s, Oxford's "Ingeniosi" of the future

Lecture 6: Hydraulic Engineering - How We Use Hydraulics to Solve Real Life Engineering Problems
Dr Jane Smallman on "Hydraulic Engineering - How We Use Hydraulics to Solve Real Life Engineering Problems". Hydraulics is used extensively to provide solutions to engineering problems. In this presentation the focus was on civil and environmental engineering projects in the maritime sector. A number of illustrations were given of the way in which research is developed into tools that are used to solve practical problems.

Lecture 8: An Early Structural Engineering Problem: the Oxford Connection
Professor Guy Houlsby on "An Early Structural Engineering Problem: the Oxford Connection". The lecture followed the history of a structure often known as a "Serlio Frame" from its earliest mention (around 1270) to modern times. The structure is an intriguing "reciprocal frame" that is able to span a space with beams that are all shorter than the span required. The rare examples of construction of the frame were discussed (including one in Oxford).

Lecture 10: Advances in Biomedical Engineering
Professor Lionel Tarassenko on "Advances in Biomedical Engineering". Biomedical Engineering is a relatively new subject but advances in body scanners (from CT to MRI) in the last 2 decades have had a major impact on the practice of medicine. Oxford engineers have made significant contributions to the development of medical imaging and in other areas of biomedical engineering also, for example in artificial knees and needle-free injection of drugs and vaccines. The lecture reviewed Oxford's contr

Lecture 11: History of the Department of Engineering Science
Dr Alastair Howatson on the "History of the Department of Engineering Science". The lecture inclined to the earlier days of Oxford engineering rather than the more familiar recent history. The University produced engineers, not always so-called, long before 1908 and engineering was taught from 1886 although there was no formal school. Jenkin, the first professor, was elected in 1908 after years of frustrated attempts to found a chair; he combined high mathematical qualifications with years of in

Lecture 15: Engineering for Sustainable Development
Professor Roland Clift, CBE on "Engineering for Sustainable Development". The term "sustainable development" embodies an important ethical principle which includes the concept of responsibility to present and future generations. This has significance not just for the practice of engineering but for the role of the individual engineer. This talk explored, using specific cases, how sustainable development affects the way in which the technical skills of the engineer should be deployed.

Tropical Environmental Health
Inadequate water supplies and lack of sanitation facilities represent major hazards to the public health in many parts of the world. In spite of the International Water Supply Decade, (1980-1990) there are more people without facilities approaching minimum standards now than existed at the beginning of the program. Without improvements in these areas, there can be no hope that there will be an overall improvement in the health of the nations which constitute the Third World. Yet appropriate tech
