Welcome to the South Wales Region

South Wales Region Officers 2023-2024
Howard Jones (Chair)   David Harwood (Vice Chair)
Andrew Bayton (Treasurer) Joseph Evans (Secretary)

We have over 2000 members here in the South Wales Region, with an active Regional Committee and a very keen Young Members Panel, both of which produce a programme of lectures, social events and visits each year. Feel free to take a look at our events page and download our current newsletter. On behalf of our Chairman we hope to see you at one of our events soon.  

Our members are kept informed of our events programme via a number of methods:


  • Event posters are distributed to many academic institutions and certain  companies in the Region.
  • Members who have given an email contact address to the IMechE can be notified of events via HQ’s list server, and may be sent event updates, changes and reminders.


  • Please also follow our region on Twitter if you have an account or check out our Twitter Web Page.




This Region continues to actively participate in other institutions' events and engineering-related activities, particularly those promoting engineering to schools.

We are always looking for enthusiastic members who wish to be more involved in the Region’s activities and be part of the committee. If you would like to support us, then please contact us.

If you have an idea for an event then please get in touch and we can help facilitate this with you for the benefit of engineering professionals in the Region.

If you are starting out in your career and would like to be at the centre of IMechE affairs, the Young Members Panel would like to hear from you.  Please contact the YM’s South Wales Chair here.
