Advanced Engineering 2016 - National Exhibition Centre, 02 - 03 November 2016

The UK's largest meeting place for advanced engineering professionals

The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) is one of the UK's fastest growing professional engineering institutions. Headquartered in London, but with operations around the world and over 113,000 members in more than 140 countries, we work at the heart of the world's most important and dynamic industries.

With its 160-year heritage supporting it, today’s Institution is a forward-looking, campaigning organisation. By working with leading companies, universities and think tanks, we create and share knowledge to provide government, businesses and the public with fresh thinking and authoritative guidance on all aspects of mechanical engineering.

We truly believe we can improve the world through engineering. The Institution finds and nurtures new talent, helping engineers build their careers and take on the challenges that, when solved, will make a difference to all of us.


Technical events programme

Our comprehensive events programme provides over 100 conferences, lectures and seminars each year, giving professional engineers access to the latest research and best practice in their industry sector, from industry and academia. Visit for more details.
