The IET’s web of local and technical networks spreads far and wide this month – both in terms of geography and topics covered. A number of technical visits are taking place across the UK, Europe and Asia including a technical visit to a Hong Kong marine theme park – an event arranged by local students.
As well as the opportunity to go behind the scenes of aquariums, hydroelectric plants and automotive manufacturing sites there’s a variety of lectures going ahead in October. Highlights include the famous Professor Kevin Warwick giving his assessment of Alan Turing’s Imitation Game and the IET’s 2016 Young Professionals event entitled Robots in space: the final frontier.
October also hosts special events such as the IET’s exciting ‘Engineering the Future’ festival and the annual IET President’s address, where incoming IET President Professor Jeremy Watson will discuss ‘The Interdisciplinary jigsaw – developing the engineering future.’
In addition there’s also a wide range of workshops, seminars and courses designed to support engineers’ professional development taking place throughout October. Subjects include employability, professional registration, project management, finance and commercial awareness.
