The Mildner Memorial Lecture and Research Poster Presentation















The Mildner Lecture is held biennially in memory of Raymond Charles Mildner [1907-1977] who, having obtained a BSc (Eng) [1927] and an MSc (Eng) [1931] from UCL, started his distinguished research career as the holder of the Robert Blair Fellowship. He made major contributions to the technology of power and communication cables, his work spanning an interdisciplinary spectrum from electromagnetic theory through to materials science. In 1969 he was empowered by the Dow Chemical Company to nominate the recipient of a £2,500 gift. He nominated the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at UCL and the then Head of Department, Professor Alex Cullen FRS, instituted the Mildner Lecture. The first Lecture was given by Harold Barlow in 1972.

 Alongside the Mildner Lecture we also celebrate the current research of the Department with a Research Poster Display. The research work carried out by both postgraduate and post-doctoral researchers is a vital element of all leading research departments and we showcase presentations of the work of our staff, Masters, PhD, and EngD researchers.
