Burton upon Trent and District Engineering Society

Brief on society’s activities:

Local engineers founded the society in 1946 to enable engineers and those closely associated with the trade and profession of engineering to meet and interchange ideas in their respective subjects connected with the various branches of the engineering profession, and to promote the science and practice of engineering generally amongst its members.

Joint meetings are held annually with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. A programme is arranged for visits to local firms and venturing further afield trips have been made to industrial museums, airfields, mines and to the viewing of differing manufacturing processes.

A Ladies Night is held during each season and also an Annual Dinner. With lectures, social events and visits taking place, we have a very active society.

Membership is open to all interested persons. The annual fee is £15.00. Members pay no admission charge, receive direct information and have priority on activities.

Visitors are very welcome – entry fee to lectures is £2.00. Students no charge.

Reciprocal arrangements exist with the Lichfield Science and Engineering Society whereby members may attend each other’s meetings without charge.

Please note a Change of Venue:

The AGM and future lectures will take place at University Centre, Burton College, Lichfield Street, 2nd floor lecture theatre.

There is NO parking available in the college car parks for Society Members who are advised to use the Fleet Street public car park.
