The Manufacturing Technical Network (TN) met on 30th September to progress current and planned activity.

For 2022 we have a workshop planned for 1st November covering The Future of Manufacturing Automation IET Events (theiet.org) and two webinars on Digital Manufacturing being finalised.

In 2023 we are very excited to be supporting an IET Annual Prize for Manufacturing apprentices. We are also planning a series of events covering the following subjects:

  • Sustainability Challenges
  • Enabling Technologies for Manufacturing
  • Future Manufacturing Skills and Careers
  • Manufacturing In Space
  • From Mass Production to Mass Customisation
  • Academic Directions in Manufacturing

We began a new initiative today to form a Young Professionals section of our committee and we are all very enthusiastic to make this happen.

If you are interested in contributing to and/or helping drive our TN activities, we have openings for volunteers to join the TN and help reshape and expand the Executive. These opportunities range from simply attending a committee meeting, to bring new ideas to the table, through to organising, running, and promoting events.
