Welcome to the Retired Chartered Engineers' Club in Exeter.

   The Club was founded in 1986 to provide a social meeting place for retired Chartered Engineers and a means of keeping in touch with achievements and developments in engineering (see our Constitution). The Club has links with other organisations including the University of Exeter where it presents the Flux Award, in memory of our founder Robert W. Flux FIEE, to the student making the best oral presentation of a project.

   Membership is open to Retired or Semi-retired Engineers and related professionals resident in the South West and currently includes about a hundred representatives from the Aeronautical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical and Electronic, Communications, Gas, Marine, Mechanical, Petroleum, Structural and other disciplines. Prospective members are welcomed as guests at Club events.

   Meetings commence informally after 9.30 am. with coffee in the lounge and at 10.30 am. members convene in the Bridge Room for short reports concerning Club business. This is followed by a presentation of approximately 40 - 60 minutes on a subject of engineering interest usually given by invited speakers or sometimes by members. Topics have been as diverse as nuclear fusion reactors and Roman aqueducts.

   Social events take place throughout the year and technical visits are arranged for the summer months.

   The Heritage Trail section researches the achievements of engineers with local connections and where appropriate arranges for the erection of plaques in their memory.

There are Clubs similar to ours in other areas of the UK and a list of those known to us may be reached via the LINKS button at the top.
