The seeds of the Wessex Institute of Technology were sown in the 1980s. Located in Ashurst, New Forest, England, United Kingdom, the institute originated as the Computational Mechanics Institute in 1981. Five years later, Professor Carlos Brebbia morphed the organization into the Wessex Institute of Technology, or WIT. Since then, this institute has served the needs for continuing education in the industries most affected by modern technology.
WIT is more than just a witty name for a continued-learning facility. The institute is respected in the world of academia and has been funded by a long list of universities, including Italy’s Universita di Siena and Spain’s Universitat Politècnica de València.
Since 2004, WIT has awarded an annual prize for exceptionalism in chemistry called the Prigogine Medal, which is named for the late Nobel Prize winner, Ilya Prigogine.
Look for WIT to point the way toward advancements for many decades!
