As the primary objective of the “Engineering Week” is to showcase Engineering to young people, the Committee asks and encourages all IMechE members to bring their own young people to the events but also to tell their wider family members, friends and associated teachers about them.


The IMechE's partner in staging this event is the Charles Hurst Group and a number of the Group Franchises. The Group now offers a wide selection of electric and hybrid vehicles to customers across Northern Ireland, encompassing a range of manufacturers and a variety of powertrains.
