Throughout the constantly evolving work of mechanical engineers, one institution has been at the heart of the world’s most important and dynamic industries since its formation in 1847. Today, working hard to support our 111,000 members, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers is the market leader among professional engineering bodies. It is a go-ahead organisation with global reach that truly represents and reflects the profession: encouraging professional registration and long-term career development. 

As a global community of mechanical engineers represented in over 120 countries, the Institution is the largest network of mechanical engineering knowledge, skill and opportunity in the world. By equipping engineers with the right skills, knowledge and experience to help them develop, we contribute to strengthening the world’s leading companies.
