This year’s Association of University Engineers (AUE) Conference is heading to Southampton, to be held at Solent University between Wednesday 5th and Friday 7th September.

The association promotes and supports Higher Education Estates professional staff within all engineering functions, from design, operation, maintenance and projects, to facilities, energy and sustainability. Primarily to help engineers resolve challenges, to share knowledge between institutions and to promote training and career development among university engineers, the association has held their annual conference every year since the inaugural conference at Salford University in 1971.

The conference provides opportunities to learn from a wide variety of speakers across different topics, from within and outside of the sector. Speakers provide honest accounts of approaches they have tried, including what worked and what didn’t work, which you can learn from and take back to your institution to help in your day-to-day role. 

This year’s theme is ‘Managing a Compliant Estate’. The content of the conference programme is currently being finalised, however delegates can look forward to key insights that will assist in providing cost effective operations and maintenance services, managing the risks of varied and complex estates, whilst maintaining compliance across many aspects of estate management. The conference content also contributes to members’ Continuing Professional Development (CPD) which is a requirement of many respective professional bodies. 

There are many networking opportunities available throughout the course of the conference, where attendees will be able to catch up with colleagues from other institutions and also meet some new faces. Two conference dinners will take place, with the Informal Dinner held on-site at the university and the conference Gala Dinner taking place at St Mary’s Stadium, home of Southampton FC. 

A 50-stand exhibition will also be taking place, where companies will be promoting current products and services which could further benefit institutions. For further information on commercial opportunities, please contact the conference organisers at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..   

We’d like to thank all supporters of this year’s conference, with a special note of thanks for the two main sponsors – ZetaSafe Limited and Klima-Therm Gree. 

The conference is open to university engineers, including AUE members and non-members alike.  Full conference packages, which include all plenary sessions, attendance at both conference dinners, lunch and refreshment breaks, and accommodation, are available at £365 for members and £385 for non-members. Retired member and partner packages are also available, as well as multi-buy discounts. To register, and for more information on the event, visit: http://www.cvent.com/d/ftq359

Whether you are a returning member or someone new who hasn’t attended the conference before, we looking forward to seeing you in Southampton in September!
