Welcome to the RCEA(Sussex)

An Association for Retired Professional Engineers

President: Derek Webb CEng FIEE
I would like to introduce myself as the incoming President of the RCEA. I have been a member since 2002 and have enjoyed coming to the talks on a Tuesday afternoon at Field Place in Worthing. I have also taken part in several visits and outings. Partners are welcome to join us on the outings and come along to our monthly coffee mornings. I am a retired Electrical Engineer and spent my whole career in the rail industry with British Rail and its successors. My expertise was mostly in the Electrification Department on the Southern Region with its third rail system. If you are browsing this site and meet the criteria of retired professional engineer (mainly Incorporated or Chartered) of any discipline, I encourage you to come along to a talk and say ‘hello’?
Derek Webb

Thames Barrier and Tower Bridge, Tuesday 14th June 2016, 11:00

An opportunity has arisen for us to join an IET retired members group outing for a presentation and viewing of the Thames Barrier to be followed by a guided tour of Tower Bridge. We have an allocation of around 15 places. The cost is set at £5 per person. Every attendee will be expected to make their own travel arrangements which is likely to cost around £30. A detailed travel plan has been proposed although those who prefer to use different arrangements are free to do so. More details and a booking form will be found in the appropriate section of the March Newsletter.
