Upcoming Technical Network Events

18 November 2023, 7th IET GCC Robotics Challenge

The IET GCC Robotics Challenge is an annual challenge aims to provide students and young professionals to build robotics-based solutions systems.

The IET-GCC Robotics Challenge has been running for the last seven years.  The challenge has received substantial attraction from the young professional members, engineers,  IT related specialists, and students studying Engineering and Technology. 

6th December 2023, 09.30 - 16.00, Future of Healthcare

Jointly hosted by the IET Healthcare Network, IET Robotics Network and IET Vision and Imaging Network with support from the IET Healthcare Policy team.
