"In 1818 the Institution of Civil Engineers was founded. At that time the word "civil" was used to distinguish them from Military engineers and included all the fields of engineering, not just construction as it does today."

Civil Engineering, in this modern context, is not only confined to constrution engineering.

Fair use rationale for Image:IMechE logo.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:IMechE logo.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 05:10, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Split presidents?[edit]

The tag to split that list from the article has been in place since 2009, and there is no discussion on this talk page; I'm removing the tag. Drmies (talk) 15:06, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

COI declaration[edit]

I'm an employee of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and felt this page needed some updates. Have updated the membership figures and President details, improved opening summary so it is more in line with the pages of other engineering institutions and added to the origins page. Have referenced where possible. Any issues with NPOV let me know - have tried to follow them as closely as possible. Am planning to do some more updates and get rid of dead links tomorrow. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jamesfulker (talkcontribs) 17:31, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 2 external links on Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked
