Heriot-Watt University Malaysia recently welcomed Professor Toby Peters to take part in the Vice-Chancellor Distinguished Lecture Series.
Professor Peters, founder of Highview Power Storage and the Dearman Engine Company, discussed 'Engines running on thin air: how a simple invention has turned energy on its head'.
Professor Peters has received international recognition for raising the profile of the Cold Economy, especially with regards to the need for sustainable cooling methods.
Professor Robert Craik, Heriot-Watt University Malaysia's Provost and CEO, said, “We strive to provide students with an education that transcends the classroom, and the Distinguished Lecture Series is one of the ways we achieve this.
We invite prominent figures in various fields to come and share their insights and experiences, so that our students can gain a better understanding of the principals and theories that they are taught.
In attendance at the lecture were various members of the industry including representatives from APM Engineering & Research, Malaysia Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT), Green Data Centre LLP and Putrajaya Holdings among others, as well as students and staff of Heriot-Watt University plus members of the media.
This was the university's second lecture in its Vice-Chancellor's Distinguished Lecture Series for 2017. The first, which was held in January, had Sir Terry Morgan, Chairman of Crossrail UK, as the guest speaker.
