This November the IET has a wide variety of events on offer for those interested in engineering and technology. As well as a huge array of informative lectures there’s a great selection of technical visits on offer including a trip to RLab Reading Hackspace, a chance to check out the Defence Academy’s armoured vehicles in Swindon and an anaerobic digester and wind turbine tour in Newtonstewart.
Internationally there are also several interesting events taking place including – but not limited to – a visit to the Royal New Zealand Navy in Auckland to discuss technology in fighting frigates and a technical tour of Hong Kong International Airport in Lantau.
A variety of Lifeskills workshops are being held across the UK if you’d like to improve on your soft skills, plus there are several longer courses available on topics such as TRIZ and specification writing as well as the IET’s regular professional development and registration workshops.
Finally, for young engineers it may be worth noting that this November there is a Student and employer engagement day taking place at IET London: Savoy Place. Aimed at engineering students and recent grads, this is an opportunity to learn more about working in industry, summer placements and internship opportunities as well as networking with a wide range of potential employers.
