C&G Week February 2016

From Monday 22nd to Friday 26th February our interdepartmental competition is taking place on Queen's Lawn every lunchtime.

C&G Week is our annual interdepartmental competition where we find which discipline of engineering is truly the best! This year it will take place between Monday 22nd to Friday 26th February and is proudly being sponsored by Shell.

The event is open to all members of Imperial College London. Engineers have the bonus of being able to score points for their departments and the chance to win daily prizes. The points from each day contribute to a running total where the winning department will win a bar night for its members!

CGCA Debate

On Thursday, 25th February at 6:30PM, in Room 201 Skempton Building, we are hosting a debate on Ethics in Engineering.

Organisations' and senior executives' ethical behaviour, or misbehaviour, are in the media almost daily.

Engineers face difficult decisions in their day to day working lives. Often the choices they make have big impacts on the lives of real people. But is it not always clear what's right, what's responsible and what's moral? Where we each choose to draw the 'Ethical Line' affects us as individuals and how our profession is regarded by the public.

This event brings together current students, alumni and a panel of industry leading figures to debate in frank terms the ethical issues facing engineers. By discussing a broad range of case studies and sharing real experiences, we will see how Imperial engineers from different industries cope when confronted with a dilemma of their conscience
