Department of Materials


Seminar Programme

Each year, the Department of Materials hosts a comprehensive schedule of seminars. These events give staff and students the chance to interact with researchers, including international speakers, and industry leaders.

All members of academic and research staff are welcome to attend these seminars, whether from the Department of Materials or the wider Loughborough research community.

For Materials PhD students, attendance at these seminars is required as part of your wider researcher development programme.
