Higher Education in a Treasured Natural Setting

The Wessex Institute of technology was established in 1986 by professor Carlos Brebbia. It is situated at Ashurst Lodge in the New Forest National Park, which is located in the south of England.WIT’s mission to facilitate knowledge sharing between professionals and academics allows higher degree seekers ample opportunity for collaboration and publishing.Researchers and industry professionals may participate in any of WIT’s three core activity areas: Research, Conferences, and Publishing.WIT collaborates with Universities all over Western Europe, as well as a program in Brazil. It is known for its publishing arm, WITPress, and the 20-25 conferences that it holds each year.

Two awards are given out each year by WIT: The Prigogine Medal, conceived in collaboration with the University of Siena, and the George Green Award, which was co-sponsored in tribute to George Green wth the University of Mississippi in 2014.Perhaps in deference to its incredible wilderness setting, WIT publishes a large body of work regarding Eco-friendly design and preservation.
