2019 is a key milestone year for both Siemens and WES. Join us as we hold a joint celebratory event to mark the WES centenary year and 130 years since the Siemens C.A Parsons factory was established. Our guest speaker will be Meshi Taka, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion champion for the north east branch of the Institution of Civil Engineers. You will also hear from speakers charting the history of WES and Siemens and looking forward to the future of engineering. There will be ample opportunity for networking.
This conference will explore not only the significance of the 1919 Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act in Britain, but also the ‘professional woman’ in all periods, nations and forms.
Taking place at the LSE, the event also features a presentation on the WES Centenary Trail on 6 September.
Fundamentals of IEC 61850 2019 is a training programme providing electrical engineering professionals new to IEC 61850 with a thorough and up-to-date understanding of the standard. The programme consists of 12 modules, providing a combination of speaker-led presentations, group Q&A sessions and practical exercises.
Brought to you in association with Equate Scotland in celebration of WES’ centenary, this two day event will take place at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, and features speakers looking at STEM women in the past as well as current practice and the impact future technologies will have.
