James Clerk Maxwell and his contributions to engineering science

4 December 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Speaker: Prof Iain A MacLeod 
Joint Meeting with RINA

IESIS Past President Iain Macleod will discuss what may be learned from the educational and lifestyle experiences that, combined with immense natural ability, allowed James Clerk Maxwell (born in Edinburgh, 1831) to become one of the greatest physicists of all time. It is said that a significant proportion of modern physics leads back to Clerk Maxwell’s work. A significant amount of the science used in engineering also leads, directly or indirectly, to his work as will be explained.
