Welcome to the Southern Joint Branch

The Southern Joint Branch is comprised of members of both the Royal Institution of Naval Architects and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology and runs a diverse programme of lectures and social events.

Our social programme begins with our President’s Drinks Reception in May, which is an informal networking event for the South’s maritime community and ends with our black tie Annual Dinner in November. Our technical programme runs a number of technical lectures throughout the year on a wide variety of topics which are open to both members and non-members. The branch aims to inform and assist at all stages of career development and technical events are eligible for CPD. We also have an active Early Careers Professionals network which runs targeted events throughout the year.


It is with great regret that we have had to cancel this year’s Annual Dinner however we hope to return to holding our social events next year. Our 2020/2021 technical programme will be going ahead (with the exception of the technical visits we had planned which are postponed) but lectures will be held using Zoom until further notice. Registration for lectures will be done using EventBrite so please follow us to receive the latest news on our technical events.
