Trains, Planes and Rocket Science: Astrium, Hitchin Alliance and Monarch Aircraft Engineering

Type Of Event:
Event Start Time:

IMechE LogoJoin the Railway Division Young Members and learn about varied engineering projects with our technical visit, taking in a new-build flyover, a major airline maintenance and overhaul facility, and a key player in the UK space technology industry.

Explore four very different companies, all working at the leading edge of their sector. Look outside your area of expertise with this visit, exposing new ways of working and providing an insight into the wider transportation industry, allowing for knowledge sharing across industrial and discipline boundaries.

  1. See how alliance-working is being implemented at
    the Hitchin Alliance flyover, where Network Rail and HOCHTIEF are delivering a major project to increase capacity, timetabling and resilience at Cambridge junction

  2. Explore Monarch Aircraft Engineering Limited’s (MAEL) maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities at London Luton Airport and contrast with a T&RS depot. MAEL is a major supplier in this sector, providing these maintenance services for a number of airlines in addition to their own fleet.

  3. Finally, take a glimpse inside the exciting world of the space industry. Astrium is a civil and defence supplier of launchers, satellites, and associated space infrastructure. Astrium will provide an insight into the space sector and the work carried out at their Stevenage plant.
