To build an industrially led community of companies, universities and stakeholders committed to investing for the future development of Embedded Systems Engineering in the UK.
The network will be led by leading experts, a body of respected senior embedded systems professionals, to inform companies that develop, operate, and maintain products that contain embedded systems.
The Network will develop ways to build and strengthen the Embedded Systems Engineering capability in the UK, bringing coherence to and articulating sector needs. It will encourage wider recognition from the public and private sector of the product value enabled by these components, the risks, and opportunities in both their development and ownership, and the skills and learning needed to engineer reliable products suitable for their intended market.
TechNES will enable communication between practising managers of embedded systems projects for exchange of best practice, providing a platform to collaborate in research and development, skills, and training solutions, and to establish high-value partnerships between industrial and academic participants including liasing with UKESF ( https://www.ukesf.org/ )
TechNES members will help define cross-industry best practices and industry-specific standards such that the body becomes a recognised authority.
TechNES will champion the challenge and rewards of all aspects of embedded systems as a career with a significant UK future, and to spark enthusiasm for embedded systems engineering in future generations of potential engineers. It will support this by, for example, creating a skills framework to enable the practical assessment, nurturing and development of embedded systems engineers at all levels and all stages of their career.
