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

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.

Next events organized by SEII

Vignoble de Bordeaux

From the 23rd to the 25 th April 2018 – Wine and Vine trip

The annual trip organized by our Wine and Vine Committee will bring us to one of the Bordeaux areas, the region of the Graves. It’s one of the oldest wine-producing regions of the south-west of France, the expansion of which dates back to the 12th century, with the marriage of Eleonor of Aquitaine with the King of England Henri II Plantagenêt. Five hundreds years later, Montesquieu, baron de la Brède, nicknamed the wine-producing philosopher, became the ambassador of the wines from that region. We’ll have the opportunity to visit four famous Châteaux – « Martic-Lagravière », « Haut-Bailly », « Haut-Selve » and « Carbonnieux » – and to taste their products.



Eric Pirard

Friday 4th May 2018 - Luncheon-lecture

Being immersed in technological abundance, we don’t worry much about the materials that make it possible and are often in the hands of economically emerging countries. This is the case of some metals, which are said to be ‘critical’ for reasons that can be geological, technological and/or geopolitical. Therefore, Eric PIRARD, Professor at the University of Liège ( Mineral Engineering and Recycling ) will speak about « L’approvisionnement en métaux critiques : importance, stratégies et impact », first explaining why some symbolic metals are critical, and afterwards describing what is done in our region as regards the circular economy of metals.




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 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 May 22nd to 25th, 2018, IACEE ( International Association for Continuing Engineering Education ), of which SEII is an institutional member, organizes its 16th World Conference on continuing engineering education at the “Technológico de Monterrey”, Monterrey, Mexico. More information on:
