We are a forum where we exchange ideas and experiences for anyone, be they engineers or not, having an interest in engineering.
Under 'normal' circumstances our aim would be 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!
NES Council, the Society's ruling body, is aware that these are not 'normal' times.
It sincerely hopes that all our existing Members are managing under these challenging circumstances!
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, they might well be able to suggest someone who can.
Sadly for this coming season, we won't be able to follow our traditional format!! Until further notice events can only be held virtually using
Zoom and is by invitation only. These will be sent by email to all Members that have registered an email with us. If Members wish to receive
an invitation, it is a Member's responsibility to ensure that the Society has the correct address to send it to.
Several important decisions were ratified at our recent virtual AGM:
1) There will be no Membership Fee in any category for the coming season. Membership for 2019-20 will automatically roll over to 2020-21.
2) The NES Yearbook, in its normal form, will not be pubished for 2020-2021.
3) The website will be used as the standard reference point for the Society. All events will be notified here.
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 updated recently. To access them you only have login and then move to the appropriate tab on
As an added extra the Society has created a public page that has 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. Please contact
the webmaster via email about suggestions for additions to the present list.
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
blue handbook on how to register. If you aren't a Member here is a good reason to join us!!
Vital help needed!! Hethel Innovation urgently needs help with several projects connected with the current covid 19 crisis.

Keeping you informed!
Over time the Membership database gets out of date. This is particularly true with email addresses!
To get important messages, such as visits. through to Members it is vital that the necessary contact derails are correct!
Changes can easily be made by through a Member's Home Page!!
