September 2014 will see the University of Bradford host the national conference of the Association of University Engineers; delegates from all over the country will be visiting the City Campus.

The theme of the 2014 conference is "Building a Self-Sustaining Future: Making a Difference Together"; which will look at how engineers as a collective can help safeguard business operations at their institution.

A wide range of entertaining and informative speakers, including household names, will give talks during the conference. There will also be a large exhibition with exhibitors from a wide of companies including a number of ‘blue chip’ organisations.

Russell Smith, the University’s Estates Manager, commented “It is huge privilege for the University to host such a prestigious conference; we will have representatives visiting from nearly every University in the United Kingdom.

“It is a real testament to our University’s sustainable building programme to be awarded this conference. I believe it give the delegates a very different opinion of Bradford as City Campus, which is now a wonderful green oasis.”
