Get Involved

We hold regular technical meetings, conferences, seminars and other events

Most technical meetings are open to members and non-members and our Presidential Programme lectures are live streamed.

We have 16 local IRSE Sections

These enable members to meet together, hold events, give technical presentations and share their knowledge.

We have a Younger Members' Section that organises technical meetings, conferences and technical visits aimed specifically at those in the early stages of their training and development

Membership is automatic for all members of the Institution up to the age of 35.

We have a mentoring scheme to assist members to develop their professional competence, achieve their learning objectives and enhance their non-technical skills

We encourage our more experienced members to become mentors to share their skills and develop others.

Our Minor Railways Section aims to provide an encouraging forum to support, assist, and provide guidance and to learn from those involved in the minor railway and heritage S&T community

It organises regular technical meetings, workshops and visits and hold a detailed library of guidelines aimed at minor railways.
