Event description
The IMechE and IET have joined forces this year to organise a lunch and networking event for their members.

About this Event

In what is planned to be the first in many ongoing partnerships between the two institutions, this ‘Christmas in July’ themed event will feature a three course meal and presentations from two technical speakers.

Technical Presentations:

1. "Engineering, Toys and the Laws of Plasticity,“ by Greg Simmons.

The IMechE’s speaker will talk about his inspiring career transition. After gaining his qualifications in Australia, Greg headed off to Europe where he spent 20 years working mainly in motorsport. Also during that time he was also one of the founders of Elektromotive, a company established to design, manufacture and install on-street charging stations for electric vehicles. On his return to Australia, Greg joined Moose Toys, where he brings his engineering experience to the toy industry.

2. “An Introduction to Blockchain Technology”, by Joti,

The IET’s guest speaker will talk about one of the most contemporary topics in engineering. Blockchain is a system of decentralized digital lists, or ledgers, containing records referred to as “blocks.” Blocks hold information in a secure, transparent, and permanent way that everyone can access. It originally came about to record transactions done using the first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. This technology foundation opens up the possibilities to build new social and economic models in our world, allowing people, companies, bots, computers and algorithms to exchange information and transact in real time.
