London Regional Chair

Chair - Gaetano Cervino - King's College London

Vice-Chair - Spensa Wheeler - Birkbeck, University of London



Most members will know that the region was in abeyance for a substantial period until, in 2009, Ian Armitage 're-booted' it with a series of meetings over his 2-year tenure as Chair.

David Wilkin then built on that good work until 2017, hosting the national conference in London in 2013 at Goldsmiths, swiftly followed by Mark Lawrence until 2019.  Daniel Xuereb was then London Chair until May 2021.

Great news! As of October 2023 Gaetano Cervino and Spensa Wheeler are heading up the London Region - look out for news of forthcoming regional events.

Over the coming months, we will be working on a series of initiatives aimed at enhancing professional development opportunities, promoting knowledge sharing, and strengthening our network of university engineers. Our commitment will be focused on creating the conditions and an inclusive environment which could appeal your intellectual interest, motivation and active participation. Envisioning this as an opportunity to tap into collective intelligence, your input and ideas are invaluable to the success of our Region. In this regard, we will be reaching out with questionnaires periodically to shape the Region's agenda based on your input, as well as welcoming any suggestions and feedback you may have.
