The India Branch was established to develop a local support network for the rapidly-increasing number of Institution members in India.
Launched in 2008, the Branch was a reaction to the large established number of professionally registered engineers in India and the dedication of the local engineering community to continuing to develop their status within the Institution in India. The Branch was officially opened by Institution past President, Professor Bill Banks.

Companies benefit from close working with the Institution's professional review committee in the UK as well as the local support and guidance required to progress the careers of its employees in their own workplaces.
IMechE for career progression
The Institution has a network of volunteers who operate throughout India, and who are based around major cities. There is also a strong network of young members based at many universities around the country.
The India Branch of the Institution aims to:
- Provide professional, experienced, local points of contact for the Institution
- Raise awareness of the engineering profession and its role in society to the wider community
- Raise the profile of the Institution to the general public
- Organise a programme of activities to engage local engineers (both members and non members) and to support their professional development
- Support the development of the Institution membership base in the country
Please also note that member subscriptions can be paid via the Branch as well as direct to the Institution.
Our Young members have an active Facebook page with news updates and event pictures.
