The University is featured in a new film highlighting how civil engineering has shaped Plymouth and transformed the lives of people in the city.

'Engineering Plymouth' illustrates the city’s engineering journey through time before focusing on its future and the people tasked with leading current major engineering projects. It has been produced as part of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)’s 200th anniversary celebrations, and also coincides with the Government's Year of Engineering.

Among the locations featured in the film are the University’s COAST Laboratory, Electron Microscopy Centre, Marine Station and Structural Integrity Laboratory.

The film was produced by Wind & Foster and narrated by actress Dawn French, with music by acclaimed singer songwriter Seth Lakeman. It brought to life more than 500 years of engravings and archive photography and was supported by 14 regional partners and over 30 contributing organisations.

With more than 25 filming locations in Plymouth and surrounding areas, the film also featured iconic landmarks including Smeaton’s Tower and Tinside Lido on the Hoe, the Guildhall and St Andrew’s Church in the city centre, the Tamar and Royal Albert Bridges, Fort Bovisand in the South Hams and the Plymouth and Dartmoor Railway.

Tonight is an opportunity to view the film, hear about ICE's successes in ICE 200 and network with colleagues. The event is free to attend but booking is essential via the ICE webpage
