Plastic microinjection: moulding at a glance
10 March 2021 16:30 - 17:30
Plastic is part of our everyday life. Bradford is researching and developing plastics in areas such as dental components, micro implants and optics, energy harvesting devices and anticounterfeit technologies.
The work ranges from: a concept for a device that needs a full process specification to get it into the marketplace; to an existing product requiring refinement or redesign to reduce cost, enhance functionality and be environmentally friendly.
Attending Post Offer Visit Days and Selecting your Firm and Insurance Choice
11th March 2021 16:30-17:30
We know that there are lots of degrees to choose from, and lots of choice of where you can go to study them, which can make narrowing down your options to two, a firm and insurance choice, difficult for students and their families. This session will give you some great top tips about how to make the right choices and get the most out of Visit Days.Register
Can we save the planet with chemistry and computers?
24 March 2021 16:30 - 17:30
Global climate change, causing extreme weather conditions, is affecting millions of lives and will only get worse if we do not act urgently. Using cleaner fuels as our primary source of energy - hydrogen and solar energy - will have great impact on meeting zero-carbon targets and reversing some of the damages.
Our Materials Science Team share their approach to tackling this topical, important challenge.
18th March 2021 16:30-17:30
Meet some of our current students and find out why they chose their course and why they chose to study at Bradford. Hear a range of top tips, from things that are useful to your level 3 study now, to transitioning to university, and making the most out of your time at university.
Our student panel will give you the chance to ask questions, hear from students about their experiences moving away for university, and students living at home while going to university.Register
Water, water everywhere, not any drop to drink
25 March 2021 18:00 - 19:00
Water is one of our global challenges and everybody’s business. About 71 % of the Earth's surface is water but 97% of that water is salty and undrinkable. The demand for freshwater is increasing by 64 billion cubic meters/year while the world’s population is growing by roughly 80 million/year - there is not enough freshwater!
This talk will highlight social & technological perspectives around water.
Regenerative Medicine and Cell Therapy
21 April 2021 16:30 - 17:30
Regenerative medicine aims to grow or repair organs to be used as replacements for damaged tissues and organs. The field has the potential to provide new organs for transplantation.
Currently, cell therapy is being used to replace damaged cells and provide biological agents to the surrounding tissue.Register
Polymer Blends and Compounds: where Chemistry meets Engineering
28 April 2021 16:30 - 17:30
Polymer chemistry and polymer physics are often regarded as distant from the engineering world and technological applications.
Polymer science can produce brand new classes of material - by picking and choosing the ingredients from existing polymer structures - and achieve unprecedented and surprising properties that are used in sport cars thru to regenerative medicine applications.Register
Personalised Therapeutics & Studying Pharmacy: Dancing in the Moonlight
10 May 2021 16:30 - 17:30
With the development of COVID-19 vaccines and the Nobel Prize awarded to scientists who discovered CRISPR, there is no better time to do science, than now!
This seminar will cover recent developments in genomics and personalised medicine.
Employee Engagement in a Pandemic
12 May 2021 16:30 - 17:30
Drawing on research work from the School of Management we will look at how Covid-19, lockdowns and home-working have affected people's commitment and engagement in the workplace. One likely outcome of the pandemic is increased home working in the future, with these changes likely to be with us for some time.
Business Managers in a Digital Age

Psychology helps us to understand developmental disorders and the implications for society.
Why do an Integrated Industrial Placement in your Engineering degree?
30 June 2021 16:30 - 17:30
Time spent working in a relevant industry as an integrated part of a degree course can be highly beneficial to a student's development and employability.
Current engineering placement students will share their experiences and discuss the benefits of a placement year, with Professor of Process Engineering, Adrian Kelly.
Focusing on the "Positive" side of the Human Condition
30 June 2021 17:45 - 18:45
Positive psychology techniques are used to counteract symptoms with strengths, to replace weaknesses and shed light on optimism and flow.
This webinar will introduce theory and research in the field of positive psychology.Register
Your body clock and how it affects your appetite
14 July 2021 16:30 - 17:30
The body has an internal clock that controls our basic physiological functions (e.g. eating and sleeping) and is programmed to go through specific rhythms every day. Disruption to these rhythms can lead to severe long-term health problems including obesity and type-2 diabetes.
We will discuss the biological mechanism involved in the circadian control of appetite and body weight regulation and why disruption of our body clock can lead to obesity and how this can be reversed.
