What we do


The Institution of Mechanical Engineers develops and supports our members to do their best for a sustainable world while maximising the impact of their achievements which benefit society.


Support and develop engineers

We support mechanical engineers through the entirety of their career journey. Our priority is to encourage our members to develop their professional and personal skills so they can achieve their career goals.

We ensure our members have access to life-long learning to help them maximise their contribution to society. We provide training and development opportunities as well as access to a global, inclusive and thriving community of engineers.

Promote mechanical engineers’ impact on society

We aim to promote the huge contribution that mechanical engineers make to society at large. We harness the expertise of our members to influence government policy and be a trusted source of advice to the media and other key stakeholders.
