What our Members Say

I registered with IMechE to enhance my career and to show that I am serious about engineering. I am keen to progress professionally, to continuously develop myself and to be more involved in events. I think joining an institution is something RN engineers should seriously consider doing.

LET Ryan Bruno EngTech MIMechE

Gaining IEng with IMechE means I have enhanced my engineering status and promoted the trust others have in me. Membership has provided me with a wealth of development resources and ensures that I continue to advance my skills and expertise. I have also recognised the importance of capturing and managing CPD.

WO1 (ASM) Charles Davies RM IEng MIMechE

Getting professionally registered allows me to demonstrate my credibility as an engineer and opens up a number of roles and career opportunities. It’s also important that we, as engineers, don’t let our learning stand still but continue our professional development to get better. Easy access to courses and a wealth of information from the IMechE makes this achievable.

Lt Cdr Craig Jordan RN CEng MIMechE

Professional registration not only highlights your academic ability, but also, maybe even more importantly your experience, knowledge and evidence based achievements within your field of expertise. Being professionally registered is a worldwide accreditation and allows you to stand side by side with some of the best engineers in the world.
