Welcome To The Thurso Area

This site will be used to update you on events and activities being organised by IMechE Thurso Area.

We work actively for the Institution, with members in the Caithness, North Sutherland,Orkney and Shetland areas, holding events, working on engineering initiatives, and raising the profile of engineering. Our members work in an extremely wide range of industries including oil and gas , renewables and nuclear. Being somewhat geographically remote, we try to focus on giving our local membership value and specifically arranging events , largely in Caithness.  In order to promote engineering in general our events are usually free and open to the public as well as our local members .

I hope you find something of interest in your area and if there's an event you would like to see then please don't hesitate to contact us .
