Welcome to the Gloucester Area


Coronavirus, COVID-19     Update 10th October 2023

IMechE Gloucester Area events will now be mostly going ahead in the format of face to face, in-person meetings and visits, but we are occasionally running Teams webinars.   There are about 900 of us in our Area who receive our event emails.


The Gloucester Area IMechE Committee organises an annual programme of talks, activities and visits related to mechanical engineering topics.  We try to provide a varied calendar of events; to appeal to both our members and visitors. 

We arrange joint events with a number of other institutions, including the RAeS, IET, ICE, CQI, CIPD, IOP, and BCS.

If you have an idea for a future event, feedback on an event that you have attended, or if you would like to get involved with the committee, then please get in touch via the Contact Us page.

The position of Gloucester Area Committee Chair is currently vacant - is this the role for you?

In the absence of a Committee Chair the inbox for the Chair's email address continues to be checked, so please don't hesitate to contact the committee through the following link:

  • Energy from Waste Visit    Fully Booked
    Event Type: Technical visit
    25 April 2024 18:45 to 20:30
    Urbaser - UK Gloucestershire Energy from Waste - Haresfield
    Gloucestershire’s new “Energy from Waste” facility is a key element of local waste management. Operational in 2019, it takes waste that would otherwise go to landfill and produces electricity. Its design and operation is of great interest to engineers. The 2-hour visit involves a presentation and a walking-tour of some of the facility. The walking tour takes in the Waste Reception Hall, Waste Bunker, and a view of the waste burning on the grate.
    Industry: Energy transfer & thermofluid mechanics
