About the AUE

The Association of University Engineers (known as the AUE) was formed in 1970 by a small group of University Engineers who wanted to create a 'networked union of like minded people'. The Association has representation from around 100 universities throughout the UK and Eire.

The Association's aims are as follows:-

Retired Members Group

If you are currently a Full or Associate member and about to retire from university life the Retired Group offers the possibility of socialising and networking with former friends and colleagues.

Every year around Easter we arrange a social gathering over a long weekend when we reconnect and discuss our involvement at the forthcoming conference.  We aim to meet up at a different location each year. 

There is no fee to join the Retired group - it is very friendly and informal and welcomes all members who are retiring, contact can be made with Les Richards, Retired Members Representative at leslie.j.richards@eco-rich.com or via Sally, AUE Administrator at info@aue.ac.uk.
