PIL: Passion in Education, Passion in Research

Mon 20 Mar

Professor Anthony Vickers
School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering

Professor Vickers has a passion for education and research and the cross-linking between the two. Through engaging internationally on education, new approaches to degree course and module design and his research interests – Professor Vickers will discuss how following this passion supports the University of Essex’s twin commitment to excellence in education and excellence in research.


Our Professorial Inaugural Lecture series celebrates excellence in research undertaken by our recently appointed professors.

Conducting internationally significant research means our lecturers always have their fingers on the pulse and academics at Essex are at the forefront of the latest research findings and emerging trends. Our new professors will offer enlightening explanations on their own specialist subjects in areas such as sociology, politics, health and human sciences, psychology, computer science and electronic engineering, history, biological sciences, sports science and economics.

The lectures will be available to view online at
