Solent Network Forum: Engaging with academia


Image of three blue heads in profile on grey background

This session is to determine the Academic Partners expectations of the Solent Network, the relevance and success of current activities, what new initiatives should be explored and how the IET can engage more successfully with students and academics.

Date and Time

18 April 2013 - 18:30-21:00


Southampton, United Kingdom - icon_popup  (See map)


Organised by the Solent local network.

About this event

The IET Solent Network is involved with Universities which have IET accredited courses and direct relationships with the IET and with Colleges who do not. Thus the scope of the relationship between these institutions and the IET Solent Network varies.  While those who attend the activities benefit, the level of attendance is variable with most activities well attended and a few less so.  The objective of this session is to determine from the Academic Partners what they would like to get from the IET Solent Network.

There are a number of activities are already in place.  Among these are events organised in conjunction with our Young Professionals, which include The Great Egg Race, the Present Around the World competition and various Life Skills courses.  The main network also supports award schemes, the recipients of which are students nominated by the local academic institutions.

In this session we would like to examine whether current activities are relevant and successful; whether new initiatives should be explored and more generally how we can engage more successfully with the students and academics at our three local universities.

We would welcome anyone who has in interest in how we collaborate with our local universities and has ideas to bring to the table.
