Technological change, driven by new discoveries and market forces continues in all technical areas enabling advances in products, services and processes. To support this pace of change the world needs a continuous supply of appropriately qualified engineers, scientists and technicians. This need is present in all the major technical challenge areas identified in forward looking strategic plans such as those identified in Europe’s Horizon 2020 initiative. It is Higher Education and training organisation’s roles to produce appropriately qualified individuals to enable these technical challenges to be met. This is achieved through appropriate curricula, teaching and learning environments and methods.
ITHET 2014 will have a special theme as well as all the traditional themes of previous events. This year we want to explore the curricula and teaching methods appropriate for the future global technical challenges. You will be able to choose between the usual paper presentation in a session or in poster form in special poster sessions. Also this year’s conference will feature a research students paper competition so please encourage your researchers to submit.
The conference is now over. Thanks to the organising team for their fantastic support in organising it - and thanks to all the delegates who made it a very interesting conference.
We raised £50 for Martin House Children's Hospice at the Conferene Banquet. Thanks everyone for their kind donations.
