Welcome to the Cambridgeshire Area

This site has the latest news, upcoming events and how to contact your committee, or even better join us, for all mechanical engineers in and around Cambridgeshire.

We are always looking for feedback from our members. Whether it's suggestions of lectures, potential visits or more general comments, we'd like to hear from you.

We are use email to inform our members about events. If you don't already receive these, please register your details and keep them up to date using the Institution's Member pages. You can if you prefer contact the Subscription Department on +44 (0)1952 214050 or at subscriptions@imeche.org.

We are members of the Cambridge Network to ensure our events in the area are widely advertised and attract the attention of the local business community to the Institution's activities.

Most events are free to attend, and open to members, guests and the public. Booking is needed for some events. Check the event listings for details.

We look forward to seeing you soon at one of our events or committee meetings.

Looking for activities in the Bedfordshire area?

We have separated the Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Areas, so we can focus on providing full programmes of events local to engineers in both areas. You are still welcome to attend events in either area.

The Bedfordshire area programme and committee are here.
