Welcome to Aerospace North West

The Aerospace Division of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers set up IMechE Aerospace North West in 2004, as part of the IMechE's Aerospace Division, to cater for the needs of members in the region and recognise the special place of the aerospace industry in the North West economy.

The Committee organise events throughout the year for the benefit of members with an interest in all things Aerospace. 

The Institution strives to bring a programme of interesting, relevant and good quality lectures and industry events to the North West to provide members with continuing professional development opportunities, in addition to excellent industry networking.

If you wish to register your interest and receive information on future events, please contact:
