Located in beautiful New Forest National Park, in the South of England, there is an institute for higher learning known as the Wessex Institution of Technology (WIT). It provides a great education to the scientifically inclined. Professor Carlos Brebbia, as stated by Wessex Institute, created Wessex Institute of Technology after he finished a long and prominent academic career. Wikipedia adds that he created this institute in 1986. Formerly, it was the Computational Mechanics Institute, created in 1981. The land on which WIT sits spreads well over 400 square kilometers, containing charming villages, pristine scenery, an abundance of wildlife, and more to attract visitors. Originating 900 years ago as royal hunting grounds, the land is still owned by the Crown today.
According to Wikipedia and Wessex Institute, the aim of WIT is to become the way for those in academia and jobs of this field to exchange knowledge. Various activities by staff members of both the institute and associations of the institute created prestigious connections to organizations around the world. This allowed WIT to expand in many areas. For instance, institutions of the world work in conjunction with the WIT Doctoral and Master level students; several specialist areas of learning are producing research; Wessex Institute of Technology has become internationally known for its International Conference Programs; the publishing department has expanded to using electronic formatting for its publications; the software service continues its value in maintaining the Boundary Element Analysis System and for serving many major industries; and finally, the Boston, Mass., office continues to support and promote boundary elements and to sell the WIT publications.
Without a doubt, WIT is on the cutting edge of education. The various areas of study intelligently placed themselves in the arms of the world, reaching out to other similar areas of academia and industries. In doing so, not only does WIT see expansion in education for itself, but also for the world.
