Welcome to IDGTE

Our mission is to serve our members and the industry by encouraging the sharing of knowledge and advancing the design, development, manufacture, application, operation and maintenance of reciprocating internal combustion engines, gas turbines and their related fields. We strive to be the place where all involved in the power and engine industries can develop their knowledge in the field of diesel engines, gas engines, gas turbines and related technologies.

You are invited to be part of IDGTE. Join a unique professional organisation dedicated to your industry and extend your Continuous Professional Development (CPD) by participating in IDGTE meetings, technical visits and networking opportunities.

Join now: As a Member you get access to the on-line library and receive past technical papers published in the Power Engineer free of charge.  Pay no registration fee.


It is intended that the programme includes topics of interest to our membership and the industry worldwide. In 2018 we plan to continue delivering high quality papers days as well as our seminars and conferences.  The theme of these events will include current and topical subjects relevant to members, plant users and today’s reciprocating engine and gas turbine industries.  

We invite you to send in your ideas and get involved in the organisation of these events.  You are invited to propose papers for consideration.

Your help is welcome and needed. To be part of the programme please contact IDGTE Bedford office with your comments now.


In March 2016 ICE, IET and IMechE commissioned John Uff QC to lead a review of UK professional

engineering. In response the three institutions have agreed to put in place five work streams. These are:
