The IET Buckinghamshire Network organises events and visits for IET members living in the Unitary Authorities of Buckinghamshire Council & Milton Keynes and Slough and its immediate neighbourhood.

Our events and visits cover a wide range of engineering and technology topics for engineers and interested members of the public. Even if you are not a member of the IET, you are welcome to attend our events.

Key Topics & Themes

The most popular events are those based on the “three Ws” of Wheels, Wings & Wailways. However, that does not stop us from covering IT, Broadcasting, the Urban Infrastructure, and the History of Engineering.


Our lectures are a mix of on-line and face-to-face events. The face-to-face events are held either in High Wycombe at the main campus of The Buckinghamshire New University, or at a venue in Aylesbury and also at a venue in Milton Keynes

We are always looking for ideas and suggestions for events and visits. If there is something you wish us to organise, or want us to help you to organise, then please get in touch.

Technical Visit

Over 40 members enjoyed a visit to The Trenchard Museum and James McCudden Flight Heritage Centre (JMFHC) on Tuesday 21st May 2024.  The Museum and JMFHC is run by volunteers and is within the security perimeter of RAF Halton

The Trenchard Museum aims to preserve and display items that relate to the history of Royal Air Force Halton.  The museum was named in honour of the man who is regarded as the Founding Father of the Royal Air Force.  He founded the Aircraft Apprentice scheme with which the good name of Halton has often been synonymous.

The James McCudden Flight Heritage Centre (JMFHC) has been created to promote air-mindedness in RAF recruits, air cadets, school children and other interested parties.  It extends the scope of the Trenchard Museum into the explanation of the fundamentals of flight using redundant training aids and equipment

RAF Halton, including these heritage facilities, is schedules for closure in 2026.
