We’ve just had a few weeks filled with celebrations – graduation ceremonies, the doctoral conferment ceremony, diploma presentations and a range of other events. I have also had the pleasure of opening the architects’ and industrial designers’ exhibitions. It’s hard not to be impressed and feel proud of everything our students and staff have achieved!
But that’s not what the title of this blog post refers to! At this year’s doctoral conferment ceremony, LTH appointed three honorary doctors: Colin Carlile, previous MD at ESS; Martin Gren, founder of Axis; and Liesbet Van der Perre, electronics professor from Belgium. All three gave lectures and shared experiences and stories from the extraordinary lives they’ve led. We were worried the lecture theatres we’d booked weren’t big enough! Unfortunately such worries were completely unnecessary.
