Welcome to the Sussex and Surrey Area

The Sussex and Surrey Area has a vibrant organisation which promotes many events, liaises with local engineering companies and encourages young engineers to participate in the Institution’s future.The events consist of seminars and talks related to engineering topics of current interest, with some emphasis on the key themes of energy, environment, education and transport.

The Area has contact with other engineering Institutions and has many joint events with them. Details of these events are in the joint printed Programme Booklet for 2013/14 which will be despatched to members early September.The prospect for engineers to shape the future of our environment has not looked brighter for a long time. This opportunity must be used by all and one way is actively to support the Area events.

Should you require any further information or would like to participate in any of the Area’s activities, please do not hesitate to contact me, details below, or use the addresses in the booklet.

Yours sincerely,
Chris Brockley-Blatt
