The Thurso branch of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) is back up and running with a new programme of talks including tips on how to build your own car.
IMechE was well known for a regular programme of talks on scientific and engineering subjects, to both its members and the public.
Though the impact of Covid saw it disappear from the county for a few of years, a group of local engineers have reformed the committee to bring some interesting topics back "to liven up the dark winter evenings".
The season kicks off with a free to attend talk on how to hand construct a car from scratch and get it running on the road.
This is quite a challenge in the current era of ever-increasing complexity and regulation. It will be delivered by local engineer, Andrew Calder, and take place in the Pentland Hotel on November 21 starting at 7pm, with free tea and coffee available. This is open to members of the public as well as IMechE members.
