Welcome to the Bournemouth Area

This site will be used to update you on events and activities being organased in the IMechE Bournemouth Area.  We hope you find something of interest to you and if you need any further information please contact one of the committee members.

About the Committee

Covering the towns of Bournemouth, Poole, Swanage, Ringwood & Christchurch, we have a membership of approximately 600. Over many years we have built up a reputation for holding successful engineering technical talks and industry visits. We also hold a bi-monthly Luncheon Club primarily catering for our retired members and their partners.

To deliver engineering into local schools, we work with and sponsor Dorset Asset and Valter Prize Trust. The work of the Trust culminates in an annual prize awards ceremony for students, which is held at Bournemouth University.

The IMechE and Bournemouth Area committee are keen to support the ongoing professional development of Engineers in their journey to Chartered and Fellow membership status, and run a bi-annual “Get Registered” event. Should you be in need of a sponsor to support your application, please feel free to contact our committee and we can arrange an informal meeting to discuss and progress your application.

We are always looking to members to assist with the Area committee, if you are interested, please contact the Chair or Secretary to find out more about the roles.
