Success: Professional Development and Networking Under Madrid’s Plaza Mayor!
Over the course of the 2-day event, participants completed a training
course in advanced industrial control methodologies, and also
participated in a networking dinner hosted in one of the historic
cellar restaurants located under the Spanish capital’s Plaza Mayor.
Participants included seasoned professionals from leading global
companies such as Iberdrola and International Rectifier, and leading
research institutions such as the Universidad de Zaragoza, the
Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona and the Universidad Politécnica de
Madrid. The event was hosted entirely in English.
Not only was the event a success from a
training and networking perspective, but it was also quite successful
from a new member recruitment perspective: 3 new IEEE members signed
up, 2 of them also choosing to join the Industry Applications Society
and the Women in Engineering
Special Guest Speaker.
We were also quite lucky to have Dr. Pilar
, a Senior Member of the IEEE, join participants and share
her experiences with the IEEE and in the field of engineering in
general. Dr. Gaudo even brought a magnetic levitator as a supporting
prop for her discussion.
