The AFRICA-UK Engineering for Development Partnership, for which SAICE serves as the local secretariat, held a Young Professionals Workshop in Gaborone, Botswana, from 13 to 16 September 2011. SAICE's Young Members Panel also attended the workshop and will be reporting on their experience in the next edition of the magazine. The workshop was held in the main campus library auditorium of the University of Botswana, in conjunction with the 12th Biennial International Conference of the Botswana Institution of Engineers.
On 26 August, St Alban's College in Lynnwood, Pretoria, once again kindly hosted SAICE's annual international bridge building competition. Main sponsor, BKS, a multi-disciplinary consulting engineering and management firm, was also visibly on board during the proceedings. Finalist teams had arrived from across South Africa and Namibia to see which team could build the strongest bridge using timber, string and glue supplied by Pratley.
