Region is supported by one branch, two groups and country representatives. Student Chapters are functioning in India, Sri Lanka,  Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Members and prospective members are assisted with their needs and interaction among members is at a high level through AGMs, Annual Dinners and Newsletters.

We work with local branches of UK based engineering institutions and the local institutions. This has raised awareness and the profile of the IMechE. Various events are organized by the Branches and the Groups with details mentioned on their respective pages.
