Inaugural Lectures

Inaugural Lectures

An inaugural lecture is an occasion of significance in an academic staff member’s career at the university. It provides our professors with the opportunity to share their achievements in research, innovation, engagement and teaching activities before an audience of members of the University community and the general public.
