Part of the Wessex Region, we pride ourselves on supporting the interests of our members.
We aim to organise approximately sixteen events throughout the year, whether they are technical lectures, visits, lunch lectures or committee meetings. Our events are focussed on the many and varied interests / expertise of our Area Members and planned events include a Technical Lecture on ‘Main Propulsion Shafting Failures’, Visits to GKN and Fort Nelson and a Technical Lecture on 'Aircraft Crash Investigations'. Please monitor our Near You Events page for details of our upcoming events.
Currently there is no separate Young Members Panel although the Area has started to develop closer links with Portsmouth University Engineering Faculty. If you are a Portsmouth University Engineering Faculty Student or Researcher who is interested in supporting the Area Committee please contact the Chair or Young Members Representative.
As an Area we actively support our members attain higher grades of membership, please contact the Chair or Secretary for advice / guidance at any time. We also aim to host a ‘Get Registered’ Event where more formal guidance is provided by the IMechE Business Development Management Team. Please monitor our Near You Events page for details of our next ‘Get Registered’ Event.
We are always looking to members to assist with the Area committee, if you are interested, please contact the Chair or Secretary to find out more about the roles.
