The IEE and IIE merged in 2006 to become the IET who are proud to continue these evening lectures.
A brief history of the lecture
The Viscount Nuffield/Mensforth Lecture was established as a result of the combining of the Viscount Nuffield Lecture and the Sir Eric Mensforth International Manufacturing Lecture in 2003.
The Viscount Nuffield Lecture was established in honour of the life of William Richard Morris (1877–1963), 1st Viscount Nuffield. Viscount Nuffield was President of the Institution of Manufacturing Engineers (IMfgE), formerly the Institution of Production Engineers (IProdE) where he was awarded Honorary Fellowship in 1933.
Sir Eric Mensforth helped create, and for a long time led, the Westland Company. He was President of the Institution of Production Engineers, (IProdE) from 1967-69 and was awarded Honorary Fellowship in 1978.
The Sir Eric Mensforth International Manufacturing Lecture was established in his honour. In 1991 the IMfgE amalgamated with the IEE and both lectures became firstly the IEE’s, and subsequently the IET’s prestige manufacturing lectures.
