AUE Conference 2021

Summary

This very special 50th Annual AUE Conference due to be held in September 2020 at the University of Stirling has been postponed until September 2021 due to Coronavirus - this page will be updated shortly.

What to expect

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the AUE Annual Conference to be held at the University of Stirling - unfortunately due to the current crisis we are going to have to wait another year to do so. 

This conference will be a milestone for the Association of University Engineers, celebrating its 50th Anniversary.

The conference theme ‘50 Years and Beyond: the engineering challenge in the built environment’ considers the complexities engineers face today, integrating new and low carbon technologies into our existing estate including listed buildings or those of historical interest and the wider environmental impact. Modern and new buildings also tend to be highly serviced therefore how these operate and are maintained is critical.

There are many challenges faced by Universities today therefore, the role of the engineer has evolved and changed significantly to that of the past. There are increasing legislative burdens as part of maintaining a compliant estate, ensuring resilience in terms of our ability to respond to events out with our control (environmental), business continuity and meeting the changing needs and expectations of our customers. The conference is about celebrating technological advancement over the last 50 years whilst being forward looking and placing ourselves in the best position to respond to future changes, needs and demands from both internal and external sources.

If you would like a quick reminder of how successful and thought-provoking the 2019 conference was, please have a look at the conference highlights video below.

Stay safe and hope to see you in September 2021.

Head of Operations & Maintenance
