ICE President’s meeting with G&S members, London

About this event

As Professor Lord Robert Mair continues with his presidential visits across the UK, ICE Graduate and Student members in London will be able to meet with him and discuss key engineering issues.

The event will take place at the Brunel Museum, an educational charity run by volunteers, and tells the story of one of the world's great engineering dynasties. Brunel organised the world's first underground concert party there in 1827, and now Graduate and Student members can enjoy their own party, hearing from the ICE President about the successes they bring to the industry. Robert Hulse, Brunel Museum Director will open the event with a short speech about the Museum's history.

Food and drinks will be available.
