Goldsmiths' Wing reopens

To mark the completion of a major refurbishment programme in the department of materials, an official opening ceremony for the Goldsmiths' Wing was held on Friday 27 September.

The new laboratories, teaching facilities and electron microscopy suite, are part of the refurbishment programme for the whole of the Royal School of Mines.

Professor John Kilner, head of the department of materials, outlined the history of the department and the refurbishment project.

Rector, Sir Richard Sykes, thanked all those involved in making the new facility possible, and welcomed Mr Richard Came, the Prime Warden of the Goldsmiths' Company which contributed towards the costs of the project. A commemorative plaque was unveiled by Mr Richard Came and Professor John Kilner, pictured right.

More than 100 guests attended the reception which followed, and Professor Colin Humphreys, President of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, gave a lecture on Materials Science and Engineering Today.For further details and photographs of the event, visit
