Welcome to the Tyne Tees Automobile Division Centre

The Tyne Tees Centre of the Automobile Division, is centered in the Durham area and organizes around eight to ten evening lectures and events per year and gives support and encouragement to those aspiring to become Incorporated (IEng) and Chartered Engineers (CEng).

The Tyne Tees organizing committee meets once per month and our aim is to provide evening lectures to both members and non members in the North East region who are interested in Automotive Engineering. Our panel members range from graduates to retirees, covering a diverse range of backgrounds from academia to automotive component supply to the manufacture of complete vehicles.

Our lectures are topical, lively and provide for a wide range of audience backgrounds while focusing on a mixture of new automotive product launches, new technologies and other notable global automotive events such as land-speed record, formula 1 and rallysport. We have even been known to organize ride and drive events in electric vehicles! Our events are interactive with a chance to ask questions, before, during and after the lecture, we are welcoming of all visitors to socialize with professional and like minded people!

Tyne Tees AD events are further enhanced by the fact that the venues we use enable us to display vehicles and exhibits in the room or laboratories during the lecture. Our lectures are also open to the public so both members and non-members are welcomed so you are welcome to bring along any friends or relatives who may be interested in a particular topic - no booking required & there is no admission fee. Parking is easy and free at all our major venues.

We actively welcome schools, universities, & those involved in education and careers to apply for our support as well as offers from you or your company if you are interested in presenting at a future event (lectures are usually booked around one year in advance) - in the first instance please contact the Admin Secretary (Use the "Contact Us" link from our Centre menu to the left). For the latest news from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and to obtain help with your membership enquiries please visit  www.imeche.org.

Lectures are usually on the first Wednesday or Thursday of the month. Our venues are normally Durham University, the Nissan car plant, Sunderland or Cummins Engine plant in Darlington.
