Welcome to the Birmingham Area

It is said that the Institution of Mechanical Engineers was founded in 1847 in the Queen's Hotel in Birmingham, so it's great news that we have been able to rejuvenate a Birmingham Area committee. There are more than 1600 members who live or work in Birmingham and with the changes in engineering in the Midlands it's an exciting place to be.

The new committee's aim is to support the local engineering community with valued events and services which develop and promote knowledge, understanding and professionalism of mechanical engineers, for the benefit of all. We want activities to be supportive of Member's interests, which will be varied considering the range of industries active in the Midlands!

Supported by Regional IMechE staff and strong links with other IMechE division and other institutions, the new and enthusiastic committee will keep you up to date with news and events in the area.

Contact us if you want any more details or have any comments about what you want from the new Birmingham area committee.
