Take part in cracking competitions, learn some new skills and even see Back to the Future’s iconic car given an electric makeover.
Throughout October the IET is hosting a selection of courses focusing on both technical specialisms and soft skills including management, assertiveness and finance.
For something a bit more fun there’s also a chance for you to take part in a pub quiz or the renowned Great Egg Race competition. One highlight of the month has to be Belfast’s event based around the transformation of the iconic DeLorean car into a fully electric vehicle by a team of academics and students at Queens University Belfast.
Held on the 2015 date that Marty travels to in the Back to the Future movies, the fully transformed electric DeLorean will be on show with the project manager on hand to explain the specific technological challenges with the conversion project.
