Note - the event scheduled for 25th November on Low Carbon Technologies has been cancelled.


Have you registered yet for our Christmas Family Lecture?  It's being held on 3rd December at 6.00 p.m. in partnership with Kent & Medway STEM.  The venue is Old Sessions House (Longport) Canterbury.  This year we are pleased to welcome Dr Andrew Szydlo - who will prove that science really isn't dull.  He often disappears in a huge cloud of smoke, swings teapots of liquid nitrogen high above his head, and creates large explosions. Andrew who  studied  chemical engineering and industrial safety at university,  immediately afterwards  returned to his favourite activity; chemical experiments, by becoming a chemistry teacher.  The evening is for all the Family - just follow the link under Kent Events or click here to register

Learn, meet fellow engineers and network by attending our Events; see "Kent Events" below. We look forward to seeing “YOU” at these meetings. Guests and members of the public are very welcome.

IET Kent's 2015/16 Events Programme was launched on the 6th October with a very interesting talk on the Infrastructure beneath the Streets of London. This event was held by our Retired Section in Bromley Central Library. They then held a talk on "Surface to Air Missiles and Associated Electronic Warfare" for the November 3rd Meeting. Our retired Section Events are held in the morning in the Main Hall 4th Floor Bromley Library at 10 a.m each month from October to May (excluding January). Coffee & Biscuits are available and the events are always full. You don't have to be retired to attend and all are welcome. See Kent Events for details.

Our evening events season kicked off on the 28th October with a very interesting talk by Dr Stuart Hillmansen (Senior Lecturer in Electrical Energy Systems, Department of Electronic, Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Birmingham) on Energy Saving Strategies for Rail Transport. Travelling on trains will never be the same as we listen for the changing sounds of the motor traction. This was followed on the 4th November by our 2nd Jennison Lecture, which we held in partnership with the University of Kent School of Engineering & Digital Arts. Named in honour of Professor Roger Jennison - Fellow of the IET and first Professor of Physical Electronics at the University and founder of the Electronics Laboratory - which now grown into the School of Engineering & Digital Arts. This year’s talk was given by Dr Amelie Saintonge ( Royal Society Research Fellow and Lecturer in Astrophysics at UCL) who spoke on Radio Astronomy, including references to the important contribution of Professor Jennison to this subject.

All our events are free to attend and all our welcome. See Kent Events for details.
