Barrow Engineering Lecture Season 2015 – 16

BDAE  Lecture ‘Airborne Electronic Warfare: The Cold war and its Legacy’

A Happy New year to you!

We start the year with a change to the first of the BDAE lectures. Due to the scheduled speaker being unavailable we have been able to rearrange a speaker originally scheduled for last year, and invite you to join us for the insights of Gordon Slater who has many years’ experience in the field of electronic warfare. I have enclosed a press release and poster for you to display and invite interested students, staff and associates.

The lecture is free and will be held at Forum 28 in Barrow and all are welcome, so please do let students, staff, parents know about it and extend our invitation to them.
