Description:
Welcome to the 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.
