Working with the media: a workshop by the Media Relations team

The Media Relations team will hold a media training session on Tuesday 19 September. The session, titled Working with the Media, is intended for academics and researchers and will take place at C22, Coates Building.

This training session will include case studies and examples targeted at the faculty of Engineering — however academics from all departments are welcome to attend.

This will be followed by Dr Wang Qi, Assistant Professor in the Department or Architecture and Built Environment, who will share his personal experiences of engaging with the media.
