Military Engineering Events

Up coming CPD events

This year is the year of STEM and we are looking to show how Military Engineers can be a vital asset in developing future engineers and construction professionals.  The InstRE are looking to improve its services to its members in the coming months, after a range of events looking at professional progression and free thinking, so watch this space for more details.

So whats on this year:

Royal Engineer STEM training 

If you have any ideas or need help with an area please contact the Editor for more details.  More information will be published as events are secured.  

Past Events
We would like to say thank you to the Koric Team, Mr Tim Close and Steven Patmore for speaking at our Drones event in July, the Temporary Works Coordination event in January and Mr Cyril Knabe-Nicol for coming to speak in Chilwell.  All events were very enlightening and I believe all who attended the events found them useful.  Without the support of individuals like Tim and Cyril we would struggle to keep our training partnerships alive.
