The University of the Witwatersrand School of Electrical and Information Engineering invites all interested parties to a Memorial Lecture in honour of Emeritus Professor Charles Landy (1945 to 2015). The guest speaker of the evening is Dr Malcolm McCulloch on the topic: Powering South African Industry and Beyond – the legacy of Professor Charles Landy.

DrMalcolm McCulloghCharles LandyCharles Landy was instrumental in uplifting the technical capability of the South African electrical machines industry. Not only did he develop many novel techniques for design and fault diagnosis, he also developed a cadre of graduates and postgraduates that have made a substantial difference, both locally and internationally. But Charles was much more. He epitomised integrity, was quietly but deeply religious, and had a wry sense of humour. This lecture will endeavour to pay tribute to a giant of the power industry.

The memorial lecture will take place on Thursday, 4 August 2016 at 18h30 for 19h00 (snacks and drinks served at 19h00) at Wits University, Braamfontein Campus West, FNB Building (FNB101).
