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.

    Living the West Midlands means that we rarely get to see the coast, so we thought of a trip with a difference! Join us to visit the retired cold war nuclear powered submarine HMS Courageous. You will have a guided tour around the submarine, lasting approximately 2 hours and get to visit the Devonport Heritage Centre. Spaces are limited to 24 guests. Early booking is highly recommended!

    David Cross from the IOP Hereford & Worcester Centre will talk about Friction, Stiction and Air-flow Constriction. Formula One cars seem to defy logic as well as the laws of physics but in reality they employ amazingly ingenious strategies to exploit physical processes in order to go fast.
    Industry: Automobile
