The James Watt Lecture – 23rd January 2020

Our Annual ‘James Watt Lecture’ was this year delivered by Nasir Darman, Chief Technology Officer of Petronas.

Celebrating the birth of the founder of Heriot-Watt University, the university alumni ‘The Watt Club’ decided this year to deliver a poem “Address to Energia” based on Robbie Burns interpretation of the request from James Watt.  This might be his answer!

The attached video features the poem read by Ken Cockburn
