INSTITUTION OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERS
Established in 1847, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE)
is the leading body for professional mechanical engineers. With a
world-wide membership now in excess of 75,000 engineers, the
IMechE is the United Kingdom's qualifying body for Chartered and
Incorporated mechanical engineers.
A democratic organisation, operating under Royal Charter, the affairs of The IMechE are decided by mechanical engineers from all disciplines and administered by nearly two hundred professional staff in London.
Founded by a group of mechanical engineers concerned at the lack of an Institution for their profession, the first President was George Stephenson. He was the most celebrated engineer of the day, particularly famous for the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. The Institution has grown to cover the entire range of technologies and industries in which engineers work. It is committed to ''technology transfer'' as well as ensuring the highest professional standards.
Members work in research, design, development, manufacturing, installation, commissioning, contracting, consulting and teaching, in fields as diverse as lubrication, satellite launching, surgical implants and in power stations. All find out about the latest developments in their own and related fields in the Institution's hundreds of Conferences and Events.
IMechE publishes a number of magazines, journals and dozens of volumes of technical papers - its Proceedings. There is a range of information booklets and video programmes available from the Marketing department in London.
Anyone involved in engineering will find something in IMechE for them.
Corporate Membership is linked to registration with the Engineering Council (UK) as either a Chartered Engineer, Incorporated Engineer or Engineering Technician.
