NES Council is aware that these are not normal times. It sincerely hopes that all Members are managing!
Under these trying times if a Member feels the need for advice or just to talk to someone please don't hesitate in contacting a Council Member
for a chat. If they can't help we are sure that they might well be able to suggest someone who can.
Clearly under these circumstances the Society can't operate in its normal manner. However Council would like to remind Members that the Society
has a resource that might be useful in passing time i.e. pdf's of many of the past talks and some of the visits. This data bank has been
recently updated. To access them you only have login and then move to the appropriate tab on your homepage.
In the next day or two the Society will be creating a new public page with a variety of engineering related videos, youtubes, links etc. The
Society would like to encourage you to suggest additional links to be entered onto the page.
Your Council is of the view that Covid 19 is not going to go away quickly and, therefore, it needs to look at alternative modes of operation.
We have already trialled a multi-participant video conferencing tool to hold Council Meetings. The trial was sufficiently successful for Council to
decide to run our next meeting (early May) using this tool. Our President has drawn Council's attention to a recent successful trial by the
Norfolk Amateur Radio Club of an online talk presentation. Council is endeavouring to see if we can set up a similar technology availability for
use in the early part of 2020-2021 season if the need arises. We will keep you posted!!
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.
Our most recent talk was concerned with recent developments in the understanding of modern methods farming. Dr Stephen Temple
gave a fascinating insight into how farmers are trying to work with microbial populations than against them. The benefits of this
approach to the production of foodstuffs and the reduction in farming's contribution to global warming appear to be significant.
Talk pdfs available Pdfs of many of our talks are available
on the 'Past Presentations' page of the Member's Pages. To view it please log in to your 'Members Page'.
If you are a NES member but are not registered for Member Pages access please consult your
