Welcome to the Bath and Bristol Young Members' Panel

We look after the needs of local young members in Bath, Bristol and surrounding areas through events such as lectures, training days, technical tours and beer/curry nights!

Who Are We?

We're a group of young engineers who are working towards Professional Registration or have recently achieved it and are interested in promoting engineering to the wider community.

We organise events, lectures and visits for other young engineers that are of an engineering theme but are also entertaining and interesting.  We also actively promote the engineering profession to school age children through activities such as Bloodhound and school visits, to try and inspire the next generation of engineers.

Check out the links on the side for past and future events that we have been or will be holding to get a flavour of what we do.  If you think you may be interested in an event, sign up and get involved!  If you have any inspiring ideas for events that you would like to see in the Bath and Bristol area then please contact us!


We also have an active Facebook page with over 300 users that can be found here.  We'll post all our events here (which we also post on the Near You section of this site) and the Institution will also posts updates from HQ. 

It's a really useful way of being alerted to what is going on (you can set it to come up on your Facebook feed), so check it out and click "Like" to start receiving the notifications, if you are interested.  You can also use it as a place to start discussions, or ask for help!

Get Involved!

If you are interested in joining the Committee and helping out, or you just want more information then have a look at this page.  We can usually always accommodate new people onto the Committee if you have the right attitude and are willing to chip in!

Please feel free to ask questions to any of the Committee (see contacts page) or come along to the next meeting for a little taster!  There is also always a member of the Committee at every event we run so you can just ask if you come along too.
