Military Engineering 2017 Conference on 28th February-2nd March at the Hilton Olympia, London

09 February 2017

The role of the military engineer is becoming more diverse, expanding into new capabilities and continually facing new challenges domestically and overseas.

To some, this may bring about changes in more-typical engineering practices such as developing rapidly deployable bridging capabilities, or the need to improve freedom to manoeuvre through austere and hostile environments. To others, the vital role in contingency warfare and supporting humanitarian crises and peacetime operations become key areas of focus. 

Others still will be providing auxiliary assistance to the ever-changing concerns of explosive hazards, adapting beyond the current threats of IEDs and EODs. Almost all, however, will be faced with the challenge of adapting their operational capabilities to keep in line with new doctrines and legislation, continually modifying training programmes to remain current. Nevertheless, the underlying rationale remains consistent. No matter the specific area of concern, the threats are continually evolving, and therefore so must we.

Following feedback from the previous event, along with the advice received throughout our research, the 2017 conference will combine both our Military Engineering Conference with our C-IED/EOD Conference. Whilst there remains a number of topics, which will remain largely separate from the more-commonly associated engineering fields, many challenges face both communities in equal measure; attacking the network, the growth in peacetime operations and humanitarian support and developing effective solutions following the changes post OTTAWA, to name but a few, so many will be discussed within the main conference, whilst others will be dissected in the explosive hazards focus day.
