GLASS DISTINCTION: Leeds University's School of Civil Engineering's entrance hall now boasts six spectacular stained glass panels depicting some of Yorkshire's most celebrated structures, thanks to several industrial sponsors and local studio Hannah Glass.

Both ancient and modern engineering is included ranging from the Leeds & Liverpool Canal and Ribblehead viaduct to the Humber Bridge and Emley Moor television mast. Sponsors include Arup, Balfour Beatty and Biwater. The windows which were commissioned to celebrate the half centenary of the school of engineering founded in 1946 were 'unveiled' by ICE President Sir Alan Cockshaw during a visit last July.
