About the Symposium

The Engine Systems Symposium (ESS) is an international technical conference which involves a series of presentations and discussions covering a wide range of gas turbine technology subjects and their associated systems. The event is open to everyone and provides an excellent opportunity for Continued Professional Development and networking between industry, academia and professional societies.For over three decades (running from the 1980’s till date), the Engine Systems Symposium has been an ongoing tradition at Cranfield University. It is run by the MSc in Thermal Power students under the endorsement of the Center for Propulsion Engineering with the progressive objective of knowledge increase, impartation and idea generation towards the development and improvement of gas turbine engine systems. Students not only prepare their topics for the Symposium, but are also in charge of coordinating the event, marketing it externally, managing financial aspects, organise accommodation and editing papers, among other tasks.

This year, the 46th Engine System Symposium will be held at Cranfield University on April 6th and 7th 2017. For these two intense days, the experience will include a broad exchange of research, knowledge and information as well as learning from expertise in the industry within the audience. A diverse range of audiences is expected, including major gas turbine manufacturers, maintenance contractors, technical societies, software developers, publishers and any interested individuals.
