Norwich   Engineering   Society

Welcome to NES 2018 - 2019

We are a forum where we exchange ideas and experiences for anyone, be they engineers or not, having an interest in engineering. We aim to promote widespread discussion and debate through a programme of talks and visits related to advances and achievements in engineering in the world today.
If you are at all interested in Engineering, then the Norwich Engineering Society is for you!

Our Events Programme
Most of our events from October to April are talk based spanning a wide range of engineering interests. The talks, roughly two a month, are normally held at the Holiday Inn on the Ipswich Road, Norwich. In the summer events are usually visit based; mostly to local companies or facilities of interest to Members.

'Acceptable in the 80's'
given by James Hill of Electrical Testing Ltd
In this IET sponsored talk, James Hill considers the problems involved in the installation of LED luminaires especially when retrofitting to existing structures much of which is deteriorating at an increased rate.
The lecture is thought provoking and uses visual examples of specific column failures, bad practice and poor budget management; all pointing to significant structural failures in the next 10 to 15 years!
