The University of Glasgow is hosting two events on Wednesday, June 5 – as part of the James Watt bicentenary celebrations.
The institution is hosting a James Watt Symposium, showcasing some of the most exciting developments in modern engineering. It is also hosting the Royal Society of Edinburgh/Royal Academy of Engineering James Watt Lecture later that evening.
Professor Frank Coton, Vice Principal (Academic & Educational Innovation) at the University, said: “James Watt’s pioneering work at the University on improving the Newcomen steam engine played a vital role in kickstarting the modern world. Two centuries later, his spirit of invention is alive and well on the University’s campus and we’re looking forward to showcasing some of the most exciting developments in modern engineering at the James Watt Symposium.”
