Welcome to the South Yorkshire Area

Greetings! You've found the homepage of the South Yorkshire Area Committee. We are a committee of local mechanical engineers volunteering to serve members in the South Yorkshire Area.

We have a jam-packed calendar of events for 2017/18 which is shown below, covering many topics and site visits.

Peruse them at your leisure and contact us if you have any questions related to events, or if you would like to see certain events in the future.

To avoid disappointment, please register for any event you wish to attend. Some of them have limited spaces and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

We are always on the look out for enthusiastic volunteers to help with the organisation of these events, so if you would like to get involved please Contact Us.
