Snape Memorial Lecture 2011

The annual Snape Memorial Lecture was instituted by the SAICE Western Cape Branch in 1953 as a tribute to the late Professor Alfred Snape. Prof. Snape was appointed in 1910 to the Chair of Civil Engineering at the South African College, which at the time was the only institution in the country offering courses in engineering. He formulated the curriculum and for many years was the sole lecturer in the Department. The College became the University of Cape Town in 1918, after which it was able to confer degrees in its own right. Prof. Snape continued in the chair until his death in 1946. In 2011 due to unforseen circumstances it was not possible to present the Snape Memorial Lecture and it was postponed to early 2012, be sure not to miss it on the 22nd February 2012.

We would be very interested in hearing your comments and stories about past Snape Memorial Lectures, including any old lectures or books you may have. Please send them to us via the comments facility below or get in touch via the Contact page.
