Welcome to the RCEA(Sussex)
An Association for Retired Professional Engineers
President: Derek Webb CEng FIEE
We are always looking for new members of the RCEA (Sussex). We welcome all retired engineers living in Sussex. For those not being Incorporated or Chartered Engineers there is an Associate Membership available.
As a member, you can look forward to some interesting talks held on the second Tuesday afternoon of each month from September until April. The talks are of a technical nature and are given by external speakers or by our own members who have had varied careers.
In the summer we have visits of technical interest and outings that are a more social occasions when we are accompanied by partners.
Each month we hold coffee mornings; one at the Spotted Cow (Angmering), and the other with partners at the Swallows Return (on theA259 west of Worthing).
If you are interested, you can have a look at past events by looking at the archived Newsletters on this web site ‘Archive – Newsletter’ and for membership information, go to ‘About Us – Membership’ where you can download an Application Form.

Cooch Memorial lecture: Don’t buy an electric car!
Profs Averil MacDonald and Alun Vaughan, Southampton University
Everyone seems to think that electric cars are an excellent way to reduce pollution and our reliance on fossil fuels. But it’s not that simple. Averil will explain the serious difficulties and threats that electric cars could bring, and consider the choices and life style changes that we will all have to adopt to move to a totally green electric world while Alun will describe the huge technological challenges in generating and transmitting the electricity we will demand and the current research being undertaken to achieve this.
Tuesday 14th Nov 2017 at Field Place.
