TheEngineeringClub was founded over twenty years ago to host events about the broad culture of engineering in an informal setting.

 

Activities include a series of talks on all facets of engineering. The talks are free to attend, with refreshments and a lively and informed discussion afterwards. All are welcome, but we especially encourage young engineers to attend. The talks are often recorded as an archive for members.

 

We also provide support for exhibitions on engineering subjects, professional training opportunities and film nights with presentations chosen and hosted by members.

 

The Engineering Club is an association of engineering practices, organised by ngenuity Ltd.

From May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulations mean that we are adopting new data and privacy policies. As a supporter of The Engineering Club, we would like to ensure that we are contacting you in the right way. Over the forthcoming months we will be refining how we communicate with you.

 

Every year we organise around 10 free talks, professional courses, exhibitions and member events.

For all our Newsletter subscribers we hold your name and email address. In some cases we record the name of the company that you work for and your professional discipline (architect, engineer etc). We also keep a separate record of Engineering Club events that you have attended.

 

We are committed to only collecting and holding onto your data for one of the following reasons:

  • You have subscribed to receive the Newsletter of the Engineering Club
  • You are employed by an Engineering Club member company who would like you to receive the newsletter, event and course details.
  • You have told us verbally or in correspondence that you are happy to receive newsletter and event details from us.
  • You've attended or signed up to attend one of our free events and, in doing so, we have taken this as an indication that you would like to receive information about future events.

 

If you’re happy with the data we hold, you don’t need to do anything: we’ll continue to engage with you as we currently do.

 

We will continue to send you our regular Newsletter and reminders of the free talks that we organise. We won't use your personal information for anything else, or provide it to any third party for any other purpose. We hold your data securely through a third party mailing organisation.

 

If you are not happy that we continue to hold this data, then you should unsubscribe. All our correspondence with you will contain the facility to unsubscribe from our mailing list.

 

In the longer term, if you want to check or update your details, or if you only want to hear about particular activities of The Engineering Club, we are committed to providing a facility to allow you to view and change your options in the email preferences.
