Technical meetings range from Site Visits, Technical Seminars, Engineering Week activities and the occasional Eminent Speaker. The topics vary from regional, national and international content and the program covers all the main disciplines of engineering.
Technical meetings also provide a good opportunity to meet and network with other members and guests .Technical meetings are normally held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the University of Wollongong. Please keep in touch with this website for changes, updates and confirmation of events.
