Professor Carlos Brebbia
According to Wikipedia, Wessex Institute of Technology was founded back in 1986, after a long and a successful academic career. The organization replaced Computational Mechanics Institute established in 1981. He holds a degree in engineering from an Argentina-based University, master’s degree and a Ph.D. from the England-based Southampton University. Carlos is internationally recognized for being the inventor of the Boundary Element Method, an innovative procedure that still generates vital research work at WIT.
The Wessex Institute leads in carrying out scientific research. Universities, government agencies, and other organizations fund its research. The institute has collaboration agreements with Universita di Siena (Italy), UNUCAMP (Brazil), Universidad de Granada based in Spain, and others.
The Prigogine Medal
Every year, WIT holds a conference program to issue the Prigogine Medal. The medal was introduced in remembrance of Ilya Prigogine, who won a Nobel Prize in Chemistry. The Prigogine Medal has been awarded on an annual basis since 2004 in partnership with the esteemed University of Siena.
The George Green Medal
The George Green Medal was first awarded at the 37th Global Conference on Boundary Elements held in 2014. This project carried out by the University of Mississippi in partnership with the Wessex Institute. George Green laid the foundation for the boundary elements through his intensive research. Although Green made an impact in the scientific community, little information is known about him. Therefore, the medal is issued annually to celebrate his work.
