This month the IET’s local and technical networks are holding a great variety of events – many of which will interest students and young engineers.
There are a number of courses and workshops available for example, covering everything from negotiation and presenting through to technical report writing and TRIZ problem-solving methodology.
In addition there is an assortment of technical visits taking place both in the UK and overseas, giving the technically-minded a chance to go inside businesses such as GKN Aerospace, Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, Air Salvage International and Renishaw PLC.
Present Around the World local heats and regional finals continue this month, but the renowned international presentation contest isn’t the only competition taking place. The IET Satellite Systems and Applications Network has launched its Best Poster Competition, which challenges entrants to create a poster on game changing satellite applications and their commercialisation, and the end of May sees the deadline for applications to the IET’s Apprentice and Technician Awards.
