Fostering, through our activities, the essential role of the European Engineer in our society

HomeWelcome
In the framework of its mission, SEII, spurred on by the members of its Executive Committee and other Committees, organizes regularly various events. In this way, you will have the opportunity to participate in the events decribed below.
Other events are being prepared for the next months. You will be kept informed.

Bassins de Coo

Friday 22nd June 2018 - Lecture and visit of Coo hydroelectric station

Coo – Trois-Ponts pumped-storage hydroelectric station is an essential link for the electrical supply in Belgium. It is capable of producing up to 1.200 MW of power after having stored electricity in the form of gravitational energy in its two upper reservoirs, which are situated 250 m above its lower barrier-lake. In order to achieve that, it has been necessary to drill various tunnels and to make use of an impressive turbine system. The visit will allow participants to better grasp this double technological aspect. Various projects are presently investigated in order to extend its capacity : they will be evoked on that occasion.

Wednesday 8th August 2018 – Wine & Vine Visit

After the success of our discovering day dedicated to the visit of two Belgian domains, our “Wine & Vine” Committee has decided to organize a second activity of the same kind. This is why, next August the 8th, we shall visit two renowned domains in Hainaut, which produce only effervescent wines : the Domaine des Agaises ( with its famous ‘Ruffus’ vintage ) and the Domaine du Chant d’Éole. Our lunch in Binche will moreover give us the opportunity to visit a micro-brewery and to taste its beer.

On the 8th and 9th October 2018 – International Conference

SEII organize their 2018 international conference on the Monday 8th October afternoon and Tuesday 9th October morning, in the form of a round table (presentations and debate) dedicated to the continually renewed competencies that engineers will have to acquire to face up to the future shock, and to the vital role that their continuing education will play to meet that challenge. This event will be organized in partnership with diverse institutions, among which IACEE ( International Association for Continuing Engineering Education ). The programme is currently being worked out, but you can already consult the attached preliminary announcement and save the dates.

 
Please find on our page « Archives », the list of our previous events, among which a large number of lecture-lunches and several international conferences ( presentations made during these conferences can be read and downloaded ).

SEII is also present on the European scene, essentially in the fields of engineering education ( higher education and continuing education ), of the recognition of engineers’ qualification and of their mobility and employability. Please find more information about that on our page « Description of our activities », and also a number of articles and reports related to that subject on our page « Articles ».

At last, SEII is in touch with other associations linked with the world of engineering and keeps up with their activities. Insofar as we are able to do it, we try to keep you informed about the events that they organize ( see below ).
Next 17th-21st September, SEFI ( European Society for Engineering Education ) organizes its annual conference in Copenhagen ( Denmark ). More information on : http://www.sefi.be
