Monday Lectures

In addition to the formal courses, all students attend the Monday Lecture Series, ¬†these lectures are given by speakers on a wide variety of topics-some technical, but many on quality of life, historical, or current events topics. The Monday lecture series is designed to expand Webb students’ education in both technical and non-technical subject areas. View our current lecture schedule and watch past lectures below. All videos are available on the Webb Institute Vimeo Channel.

Also, once or twice a year, a formal, evening lecture of the Zeien Lectures Series is presented.

If you have a suggestion for a Monday lecture or would like to present one, please contact Dean Matthew Werner at
