Welcome to the IET Northumbria Network.

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 speaker
