IET events this April – #engineering and technology dates for your diary


This month there’s a great selection of technical visits being held by IET Local Networks (LNs). These include tours of the National Composites Centre in Bristol, a chance to look around a National Grid 400kV substation and a visit to Airbus to discuss engineering challenges in the Martian environment.

There are also several events taking place outside of the UK, including a number of lectures, seminars and visits across Hong Kong.

During April some great workshops are also happening that may help improve your technical or soft skills, around topics as varied as the BBC micro:bit and public speaking.
