The ESD Alumni conference was held on 17th July 2015 at the Department of Engineering, Cambridge. There were 9 speakers at the event ranging from  Simon Lamb  who was a student on the 2006 MPhil programme to Nils Goldbeck, Angeliki Gkogka and Peter Levi from last year's MPhil.

The topics ranged from the winterisation of red cross tents, scenario stress testing, canal boats as part of a sustainable housing solution for London, driverless cars and energy strategy projects of large masterplans.

It was a fascinating day and exicting to hear what the students are doing after the MPhil programme.

Thanks go to all the speakers and to Nils and Jack for helping to run the event.
