Wikipedia mentions that Wessex Institute of Technology has a publishing arm that produces books, monographs and edited works, and publishes papers. The institute is supported by research and industrial organizations, Wessex Institute Foundation and projects and contracts from industries. Over the years, it has had researchers who now work in the best Universities as Full Professors. It welcomes scholars, visiting professors and senior academics who later collaborate with the Institute as Alumni to ensure the success of the institute’s activities. WIT also has an office based in Boston Massachusetts that enhances the links between the research community in Canada and the US and the Institute. The office helps in selling WIT publications and promoting the use of boundary elements in the industry.
WIT’s attractive location at New Forest National Park England makes it an ideal place for conferences, seminars and courses. It offers accommodation in the cottages and the main building.
