F.W. Angel Memorial Lecture

The F.W. Angel Memorial Lecture Series was established at Memorial University of Newfoundland in 1967 through the generosity of the family of the late F.W. Angel and the firms with which he was associated.

The biennial series enables the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science to bring an outstanding person to Memorial's St. John's campus to speak on topics related to the profession of engineering; stimulating interest in this field among students, the academic community and the general public.
