Welcome to the Germany Group

The Institution is represented in Germany by David Eyre-Jackson, the Honorary Chair, Graeme Wilcock, the Vice-Chair and Steven Kirkham, Honorary Secretary who are the first points of contact for Institution Members and prospective members in Germany. These representatives can help you with membership queries and developing links with industry, universities and engineering institutions.

The Germany group is broken down into smaller regional areas covering Germany South, East and West. Alongside this the group has a number of specialist industrial, CPD, Interview and Mentoring reps and/or support available.

Our aims
  1. Help to improve mobility of engineers by:

    1. Improving the understanding and acceptance of IMechE qualifications by German institutions

    2. Improving links between the IMechE and German institutions

  2. To represent the interests of IMechE-recognised engineers in Germany by:

    1. Encouraging the development of multicultural engineering teams

    2. Providing them with support from the IMechE itself

    3. Connecting them with other members for mentoring, recruitment and further learning and development

Breakdown of the group per membership

The group consists of around 400 members split across all membership and professional registration levels.

Breakdown of the group per regional

The group is split into a number of regions to enable more networking with people in each region. Your local area rep can be found at the contact us link.

The group maintains regular contact via email (please ensure your contact details with the IMechE are kept up to date to reflect your German living address for this).  A group LinkedIn page is also kept up to date with events and is a great way to reach out and connect with others in the group.
