Engineering Which Engineering Professional Society to join?

    Which Engineering Professional Society to join??

    Hi, i've been in UK industry as a cad designer/production engineer for about a year now and feel its probably more than about time i joined a professional body.

    i have a HND (bombed out of my degree in final year, probably due to being offered a job regardless of final results) so i will no doubt be going in at a disadvantage to other grads.

    i'm fairly new to the institution thing in truth, but i'm keen to progress professionally and i think it will be a good step in the right direction.

    My question is which one?! my boss is in the IET, but i was rcommended at uni to join IMECHE, is there any benefits/differences i should know of?

    any info is welcome.

    (and sory if this is a re-hash of another thread, i couldnt find it!)

    The IMechE seems like the most relevant to CAD engineers. Not sure which level you'd have to join at though since you've only got an HND.
