Getting Involved

Still time to book for the Midlands Engineering Dinner, 13 March 2015.
Follow this link - http://events.imeche.org/ViewEvent?code=AD6183

There is a much publicised growing shortage of engineers and engineering technicians in the UK and we, the Region Committee, see as a priority the need to inspire young people with engineering, to inform them of the work undertaken by professional engineers and engineering technicians to encourage them to strongly consider engineering as a career.  To this aim we work with the Imagineering Foundation and STEMNET as well as local schools in our Areas.  We are looking to further this involvement with schools to make not only pupils but teachers and parents more aware of the roles of professional engineers and engineering technicians and engineering as a career.  If you would like to be involved in this initiative, or any other of your local Area Committee activities, then please contact us, details below, or your local Area Committee via their contact details.  Similarly, if you are interested in mentoring and sponsoring prospective new members then again please contact us.

Contact Us

You can contact us via the link on the left of this page under the Midland ‘tab’.  We are always interested to hear your views on events or initiatives you believe we should organise/ promote.  Also, if you would like further information on the function of the IMechE, advantages of membership or how to gain membership then please contact us.
