Supported by philanthropy

The Milne Lecture Series is generously supported by a philanthropic gift from Dr David Milne to open up the potential of engineering and increase interest in the way that our world is changing.

Dr Milne says of the programme:

“I am delighted to enable Edinburgh’s renowned School of Engineering to connect more people with the greatest and most exciting engineering developments that are happening today. I hope these lectures will provide a better understanding of our modern world and encourage the next generation of creative minds to contribute to technology advances.”
