Message from Secretary and Treasurer, India Technical Centre, Process Industries Division, IMechE, India

Dear Friends,


We are set to welcome New Year 2021 and also it is now 4rd year, Process Division is will be entering. The journey started in 2018, 12th January with Process Division launch at Mumbai.

The year 2020 was a challenging year for all. Be it technical fraternity like us or the health workers, businesses and communities. The Covid-19 pandemic has set new normal of working from home, new perspective of meetings and information sharing. All of us may have missed the physical presence events at IMechE, but we all have attended more events than previous years for sure.

Process Division had conducted events such as awareness of Covid-19, IoT, Start Up guidance to young Engineers and Climate Control- Data Centre Cooling. The events focus was to create an awareness through technical advancements in handling the unprecedented situations and also the new technology.

In the coming year, we wish to enlarge the platform and start conducting events with global participation. This will exchange the technical knowledge and build stronger and mutually beneficial technical, business network. We will also encourage participation from young Engineers to make share their ideas and learn more from global resources.

As all are aware the solutions to Covid-19 pandemic are in sight, but will take a time to return back to normal course and we will keep adjusting to the ‘New Normal’ set to progress the initiative.

We will be glad to hear from you any suggestions, topics of focus or interest, so that we can arrange events after review of the same.

Wishing you and your families A Very Happy New Year 2021!
