Welcome to the Midland Region

Supporting over 9,500 members throughout the Midland area from Shropshire to Warwickshire and Worcestershire to Staffordshire, the Region promotes the Institution and mechanical engineering in general.

We have 6 Area committees and 3 Young Member panels active within the Region who organise and run a wide range of activities including company visits,  social visits – normally with an engineering interest - technical and business lectures and membership training.  There are also 4 technical centres, 3 for automobile specialists and 1 for those in the railway industry. Follow the links on the left to find the latest information on what is available in your area or specialism.

Additionally we have close links with the Imagineering Foundation, MAS West Midlands and STEMNET and we are keen to promote engineering wherever possible.

The committees are always eager to hear from members on how we can better serve your needs, so if you have any comments or suggestions – either on events or any other aspect of IMechE activity in the region - please contact me.  Similarly, we are keen to increase our volunteer network and if you are able to help in the running of a local area committee – or in any other way – please also send me an email.

I look forward to hearing from you!
