MARCH 2023

I know the trend at this time of year is to look back and share ‘highlights’, however for Petrus it has been such a dynamic year full of momentum that I am firmly looking forward, and want to share what’s coming with you. Our fantastic network is behind the success of our projects and 2023 is packed with opportunities to get involved, from learning & sharing on embedding sustainability in the classroom, to new sustainability micro-credentials and a host of experiential online programmes for your students. With that in mind, please stay in touch.

What is the GEDC Industry Forum?

People often ask what is the Global Engineering Deans Council Industry Forum and what are the benefits of getting involved. In our recent webinar, I explain all there is to know about this pioneering initiative to bring industry and engineering education leaders together. We explore how this unique and interactive event inspired past participants and positively impacted their work.
The last GEDC Industry Forum took place in China’s innovation hub, the southern city of Shenzhen, from 14th to 17th January 2024. Find out more about the programme, themes and our hosts – SUSTech College of Engineering.

ICYMI : Petrus recognised in the Guinness National Rugby Awards!

Did seeing South Africa lift the Rugby World Cup trophy on Saturday take you back to 2019 when the same thing happened? It certainly did for me, as in 2019 we were selected by Guinness as “Club Sponsor of the Year” for our work with Bishop Auckland Rugby Club. And we’re still incredibly proud of the work done with grass roots rugby to raise the career aspirations of junior players.
