In addition there is a Young Member Panel centred around Bristol. There are also three Divisional Centres for those with specialist interests in the Aerospace, Automobile and Railway industries.

Information about events and contacts for each Area or Panel is provided in their respective pages.

The overall programme for the Region aims to provide a mixture of learned society activities including prestige lectures, talks on popular subjects, visits to industrial organisations, aspects of Continuing Professional Development, student prizes and social functions.

Details of the programme, typically comprising around 90 events organised by the Region, Areas, Young Member Panel and Divisional Centres, are printed on a single card, which is sent to all our members during September each year via an insert in Professional Engineering.
