All alumni are invited to meet the Dean of Engineering & the Built Environment, Prof Alison Lewis, in Vancouver on August 31st, 2017. This visit coincides with her attendance at the COM2017 Metallurgists Conference in Vancouver.

Prof Lewis brings with her an update on the present environment at UCT and also her plans for the Faculty - a Faculty which Max Price describes as playing “a critical role in working towards solving the global problems of the 21st century - water, energy and food security”.

Date: Thursday, August 31st, 2017
Time: 6:00 - 8:00 pm
Venue: Royal Vancouver Yacht Club
3811 Point Grey Rd, Vancouver, BC V6R 1B3

I am grateful to Conrad Guelke, alumnus of the Faculty, who will be hosting the event in my absence.

RSVP: There is no charge to attend this event but everyone must please register by emailing me at

This event is open to all Alumni & Friends of UCT, so I hope you will forward it on to interested parties. I have widely distributed this first announcement across Canada in the event that interested alumni will be in Vancouver at the time.
