Dear South Essex Area Member,
Welcome to our 2020-2021 session, starting on 7th October 2020 with a fantastic lecture on Quantum Computing. After this, if our hosts are happy to talk to us online, we plan to present online the topics of zero carbon energy, fire safety, wind tunnel simulations and the development of the Airbus A350 aircraft. Zoom links for the talks will be published shortly before each one. 
Your committee has volunteered, as always, to arrange an informative season of lectures to complement the Automotive Division Essex Centre’s (ADEC) programme. At the end of each one you can raise questions to the speakers using the Zoom chat function. This year, we are going to experiment with recording lectures, where there is speaker permission to do so. These events are complementary to the Automotive Division Essex Centre’s (ADEC) programme and free to attend for both IMechE members and their guests.
The site will show an overall plan for the year whilst will give more details on each event, with the option to add them to your calendar, after reading a synopsis to find out more about each one.
Yours sincerely,
Kenan Sager, CEng, FIMechE ACGI
South Essex Area, Institution of Mechanical Engineers
