Welcome to the Yorkshire Eastern Area

The IMechE Yorkshire Eastern Area has an active and growing committee with a diverse membership across a number of industries linking with local industry and academia. The ongoing existence of this local IMechE committee is attributable to the hard work and dedication of these volunteer  committee members who organise the annual local events programme and implement the IMechE policies.

Dear local members, 

I have been an active member of the local committee for the past six years, but it now gives me great pleasure to announce that I am the incoming Chair for the Yorkshire Eastern Area.  I take the helm from my predecessor Alan Brattan, who for the past three years has led a vibrant and dynamic committee that has contributed significantly to the efforts of the Institution within the Yorkshire Region.  Alan will be a tough act to follow, but I hope to bring the same level of passion, commitment and enthusiasm to the role of Chairman that he did. I would like to wish our out-going Chair Alan the very best of luck in his new post as Chairman of the Yorkshire Region.

The East Yorkshire region has much to shout about at present, as many forward-thinking engineering businesses, whom are innovating within their respective fields, continue to make significant industrial investments within the local area.  The local committee will remain focused on delivering the Institution's message of ‘improving the world through engineering’ by working with our contacts within these businesses to deliver an exciting and varied programme of lectures and technical visits for the 2017-2018 season.  We will also strive to maintain our links with Hull University and our colleagues in the IET, ICE, IChemE and RAES.

Our committee members will continue to work tirelessly to engage with professional engineers within the region as well as supporting outreach and STEM events to encourage the next generation of engineers.  I would like to personally invite anyone who may wish to take part in the committee, offer support, host a visit or simply give constructive feedback, to contact me and let me know how together we can support and help the development of engineering within the local area.  We would also welcome suggestions for technical visits or recommendations for speakers for our future event programmes.

Finally, all our upcoming events can be found here on our Near You pages.  Please note that events are open to all, so feel free to book and come along to any that are of interest to you and your guests.


Best Regards, 

Paul Cunningham BEng, MSc, CEng MIMechE
