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, Gas, Marine,
Mechanical, Petroleum, Structural and other disciplines.
Prospective members are welcomed as guests at Club events.

Meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of the month in the ISCA
Centre, Summer Lane, Exeter. This is a comfortable venue with many
facilities including extensive car parking, a bar and dining
area where light refreshments are available before and after the
meeting. Meetings commence at 10.30 am and after short reports
concerning Club business there follows a presentation on a
subject of engineering interest. 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
