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 all engineers to participate in the Institution’s future.

Our events consist of tours, seminars and talks related to engineering topics of current interest, with some emphasis on the key themes of Energy, Environment, Education, Transport, and Major Engineering Projects.


As you will see, we are continuing to plan our 2020-2021 events, but due to our current concerns linked to the Coronavirus, we may regretfully have to postpone or change to an online event.

Should you require any further information, or would like to participate in any of our activities, please do not hesitate to contact us.
