Welcome to the Worcester Area

On behalf of the Worcester area committee, I would like to welcome all IMechE members and their guests to our activities.  The committee organises a broad range of technical lectures, site visits and social events, intended to appeal to engineers and their friends and family.

Our mission on behalf of the national organisation is to promote the Institution and mechanical engineering in general, following the Institution’s  themes of Energy, Environment, Transport, Manufacturing and Education.   We are eager to encourage teachers and their students to understand engineering and consider the profession as a career.

We have an exciting calendar of events planned for the spring, which can be downloaded by clicking here. Please visit our website regularly to stay up to date with events and to book places. 

We would welcome your input to guide our planning.  If you have any comments, or would be free to help our committee, please feel free to contact me, or any other committee member by e-mail or phone.

  • Event Type: Technical lecture
    20 February 2018 18:30 to 21:00
    Worcester University - Worcester
    Two short automotive lectures provided by AVL. The first covers the new "Real Driving Emissions" tests that vehicles are subject to, which is indented to be more representative than laboratory based tests. The second talk covers vehicle electrification, the development and testing of next generation batteries.
    Industry: Automobile
  • Event Type: Technical lecture
    13 March 2018 18:30 to 21:00
    Worcester University - Worcester
    The lecture will describe the application of mathematical modelling to a particularly complex, but numerous, mechanism. There are no drawings available of the mechanism, there is great dimensional variation between specimens, the material from which it is constructed is poorly understood and the control algorithm is largely unknown. Nevertheless it can be analysed using engineering principles to produce meaningful and useful results. The mechanism is a person and the application is biomechanics!
    Industry: Biomedical engineering
  • Event Type: Committee meeting or AGM
    16 April 2018 18:30 to 21:00
    The Swan in Whittington - Worcester
    Worcester Area AGM
    Industry: Cross-sector
