Welcome to the Midland Region

We are one of the largest Regions in UK with over 10,600 members.  The local Committees within the Region are listed as links in the panel on the left.

Each Area, Young Member panel or Centre organises an annual programme of events. Details can be found by following the relevant link.

Business Development Manager

The Midland Region Business Development Manager is Farah Baksh, the IMechE’s primary link with industry and academia across the Region.  Farah runs workshops and seminars for prospective new members and members wishing to upgrade their membership.  Details of workshops arranged by the local Area Committees are listed in their annual programme of events.  Follow the Business Development Manager link for further details.

Getting Involved

There is a much publicised and growing shortage of engineers and engineering technicians in the UK. The Regional Committee sees the need to inspire young people with engineering, to inform them of the work undertaken by professional engineers and engineering technicians, and to encourage them to strongly consider engineering as a career, as a priority.
To this end 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, Centre or Young Member Committee activities, then please contact me, or the appropriate Committee via their Contact Us details.  
If you are interested in mentoring and sponsoring prospective new members then please contact me or your local Chairman.

Contact Us

You can contact Regional Committee officers via the link on the left of this page.  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.
