Group Information

IET Local Networks
Welcome to the web site of EC3, the Specialised Section of the Thames Valley area of the Institution of Engineering and Technology. Although formally part of the Berkshire Network, we organise specialised technical lectures in Electronics, Control, Computing and Communication across the three networks of the Thames Valley Region.
The group is run by a small committee who organise lectures on topics we find interesting, and we take note of your suggestions.
So please fill in the forms we handout in the lectures, to say what you thought about what you have heard, and propose new topics.
If you would like to join the committee, come and speak to one of us at a lecture.
