Welcome to the Lancashire Area of the IMechE

The objectives of the Lancashire Area Committee are straightforward:

  • To provide a service for IMechE members in Lancashire, whether it's providing opportunities for Personal & Professional Development, or organising interesting engineering related events,
  • To promote engineering, especially in schools,
  • To encourage local IMechE members to get more involved with the Institution.


As the new Chairman, I would like to encourage you to contact us, whether it's to attend an event, find out how to take your engineering experience and enthusiasm into schools, get involved in the Lancashire Area Committee, organise an event, or do a presentation at an event. This committee now shares meetings and events with the NW young members. This allows us to generate more ideas to support the above objectives. It also gives us the opportunity to organise events of a more social nature. Engineering is fun ! 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Very best wishes,

 Paul J Shechter
