Research at WIT: “Advanced Transient Analysis of Complex Grounding Systems”
Current Position: Senior Software Developer at Husar, Split, Croatia
I started my master course at the University of Split, Croatia, but it was only when I arrived at WIT that I made real progress with my research. The professors and staff there were really helpful and I would have had a much harder time completing my theses without their support and guidance. The Institute is well equipped and work environment is pleasant and stimulating. Researchers from all over the world are working there and it was a great opportunity for me to meet different people and learn more about their cultures. Since the Institute is located in the New Forest national park I had the possibility to explore and enjoy the beautiful countryside whenever I had some time off from my research. Staying at WIT provided me with an excellent opportunity to improve on my academic and professional skills and spend quality time with great and interesting people.
Research at WIT: “The Boundary Element Dual Reciprocity Method - Multidomain Approach for Solving 3D Potential Problems”
Current Position: Researcher at CONICET (National Council of Scientific and Technological Research), Argentina
I chose WIT for several reasons, but outstanding among them, I will mention two: the well settled prestige of WIT as a research centre on BEM and the assumption, later confirmed, that WIT granted their researchers the proper support that a foreign researcher needs to make their work progress. I spent two years at WIT, followed a year later by a stage of four months.
I cannot say that my stage in the UK was idyllic. I wasn’t there for a holiday, I was there for work, and the work was certainly hard. However, I keep the memory of that time as one of extraordinary excitement. I knew a variety of interesting people of different countries, among whom I keep some very good friends. The area of south England is beautiful, especially the New Forest, where Ashurst Lodge is located. The local population is gentle and friendly, and public services work properly.
Research at WIT: “Boundary Element Dual Reciprocity Method with Multi Domains for Modelling Fractured Porous Media: Single and Two-Phase Flow and Transport”
Current Position: Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanics and Strength Materials, Faculty of Civil Engineering, University “Sts. Cyril and Methodius” Skopje, Macedonia
Life at WIT brought positive changes to my life and career. Friends from various parts of the world that I met in England made my stay there unique and an unforgettable experience in every single way. We were studying, working, helping each other, overcoming individual and collective difficulties and discovering together the beauties of England. Ashurst Lodge for me will always remain as one of the most beautiful experiences of my life.

Research at WIT: “Hybrid Clustering Method for Fast Content Retrieval in Multimedia Databases”
Current Position: Associate Professor, Kharkov National University of Radio Electronics, Ukraine & Consulting Business Analyst, Scorto Scoring Solutions, Ukraine.
I have received most of my first knowledge in Kharkov National University of Radio Electronics, most of my character in Scorto IT company, and it was WIT where I learnt discipline, planning, organisation and to reach my goals, no matter how scary they might look in the beginning. I will always appreciate that, as WIT will always be the place which gave me the ground for future success, as well as another home where it is always nice to come back to!
Research at WIT: “A Method for Structurally-Parametric Identification of a Multiple-Factor Estimation Function”
The thing I liked best about my staying at the Wessex Institute of Technology was the wonderful environment of primeval nature that gives optimal conditions for efficient work research. It was a great place to study and to live in. The researchers and staff at WIT are extremely friendly and helpful. The professors are highly skilled as well as cooperating.
It is always important to be open to new experiences when you come to a foreign country and I was given the chance to study and see new places and the culture of the United Kingdom. Besides that I had an opportunity to meet people from all over the world and hear many different experiences.
I would definitely recommend that other international researchers and scientists visit WIT both to work on research and to take part in the conferences that are held by WIT if there is an opportunity.
My research at the Wessex Institute of Technology influenced my career in a positive way.
Research at WIT: “Ontology Modelling for the Information Sharing Processes within the Labour Market”
Current Position: Lecturer at Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics, Ukraine
Wessex Institute of Technology has a very warm atmosphere and helpful staff. WIT has all the necessary conditions for researching and living. I was researching data mining and knowledge discovery and I am very thankful to the highly professional and qualified staff for the profound knowledge I received.
The academic activities of Wessex Institute are centred on its New Forest campus at Ashurst Lodge. They consist of a series of programmes at Post Doctoral level, many of which are held in collaboration with other academic institutions all over the world.
The academic success of the Institute can be measured not only by the substantial number of past researchers but also from positions of responsibility in academia and industry obtained by members of the institute. Many have become Full Professors at some of the best UK Universities such as Nottingham, Brunel and Imperial College, whilst others are now Professors in Universities within their country of origin. These are major achievements for an independent research institution.
WIT welcomes recently graduated PHD Researchers as well as established Senior academics and Visiting Professors
Wessex Institute is proud to retain strong links with the Alumni, who actively collaborate with its activities. This interaction is another way in which WIT promotes the interchange of information.
Wessex Institute of Technology organises an active programme of short courses, the majority of which take place at Ashurst Lodge. The courses are aimed at both industry and academia. Attracting international participants, the courses are presented by well-known specialists from around the world.
