SISO Software Sponsors TMU Conference 2024

Empowering Technical Management in Higher Education

The TMU (Technical Managers in Universities) conference has a rich history dating back to 1992 when it was initially conceived as EMU (Engineering Managers in Universities). Spearheaded by Richard Verrall from Sussex University and Jim Horsfield of Sheffield University, among others, the conference brought together engineering technical managers from various universities across the UK. Over the years, the organization evolved, becoming a special interest group of the IST (Institute of Science and Technology) in 2009 and later joining forces with other groups to form PTSE (Professional and Technical Staff in Engineering) to organize conferences.

In 2013, recognizing the evolving role of engineering and technology in higher education, the organization rebranded as TMU (Technical Managers in Universities). The TMU annual conference for 2024 is set to take place in Glasgow, building on the tradition of bringing together like-minded professionals to share knowledge and insights.

As a sponsor, SISO Software will play an integral role in supporting the conference’s mission of facilitating collaboration and knowledge sharing among engineering technical managers from various universities across the UK.

The conference, scheduled for March 27th and 28th, will be hosted at the Wolfson Medical School building at the University of Glasgow. Alongside other sponsors, SISO Software will have a presence at the event to discuss our latest developments, including the innovative Servicehub.

Attendees can anticipate a diverse program featuring talks and workshops covering a range of pertinent topics such as ITSS (Information Technology Support Staff), technical career pathways, leadership, and sustainability. This event promises to provide valuable opportunities for networking, learning, and discussions aimed at driving positive change within the industry.
