Welcome to the Gloucester Area

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.

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:
