REF NO.: 5

SUBJECT: Public lecture: How Memorial engineers supported N.L. COVID-19 pandemic response

DATE: Nov. 23

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Memorial University will host a virtual public lecture on Wednesday, Nov. 25.
From using robots to designing, fabricating and testing critical personal protective equipment (PPE), to consulting and advising on chemical compatibilities of soaps and disinfectants, to working with local manufacturers to produce PPE locally and aiding in the search for therapies and vaccines, Memorial engineers put their expertise – and time – to work when the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

There will be a panel discussion about those and other ways Memorial engineers supported front line workers and helped keep our population safe.
This Speaking of Engineering lecture series, hosted by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science and the Professional Engineers and Geoscientists Newfoundland and Labrador, will be held virtually on Wednesday, Nov. 25, at 7 p.m.
To join the event via WebEx on the evening of Nov. 25, please visit here.
All are welcome.
