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.

retrofitting to existing structures much of which is deteriorating at an increased rate.

structural failures in the next 10 to 15 years!
