Welcome to the My Community pages of IET Northumbria Network.
IET Northumbria Network covers the counties of Northumberland, Durham and the metropolitan county of Tyne and Wear (the Newcastle and Sunderland conurbation).
Our main activities consist of arranging technical talks to which all are welcome. They are mostly held in the University of Northumbria, Newcastle, but also at the Universities of Sunderland and Durham. We also organise occasional visits to sites of interest to members e.g. Nissan, Wylam Brewery.
A regular annual event which we help to arrange and finance and the University Student Projects competition in which the four local Universities participate.
Our main committee has a nucleus of 10 members comprising academics, engineers and students. We meet quarterly in Newcastle to discuss strategy and agree on speakers/ topics and visits and to pool resources for the benefit of the engineering profession. If you would like to help with our aims in any way e.g. organising visits and/or speakers, updating the website etc. you would be very welcome to attend a committee meeting, the date and time of which will be posted on these pages.
Our current Network Chairman is Dr Peter Minns
We also have a very active Retired Members’ section chaired by Roger Styring. Details of their activities will also be posted on these pages.
