Our Department is marking its centenary year in 2017.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, we will be holding a day of events on Saturday the 22nd July 2017. This will be an opportunity for all of us to look back on our time at the department, meet with the people we knew, and see how the department, University and campus have changed over the years. We are planning a series of events throughout the day, and in the evening will be holding a celebratory dinner.
All alumni and former staff of the department will be more than welcome at this event. The entirety of the day’s events will be free, although the evening meal will be ticketed (and places will be limited).
Publication on our History
We are creating a publication looking back on our history to help commemorate the centenary year. This is a chance to chart the course of the department’s rise to the forefront of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, and reflect on the changing student and staff experiences within our ever-expanding department.
We are eager to hear memories from anyone with a former involvement with the department. These might range from your day-to-day student life, to the way the department functioned, to the learning and research you completed. We are also very interested to hear from former departments members if you have any photographs from your time at the university which you would be willing to share with us.
If you do wish to contribute to the publication, please send your reminiscences or photographs to Abigail Coupe by email or by post to: Abigail Coupe, Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, The University of Sheffield, Suite 27, 3 Solly Street, S1 4DE
