Academic and shared interest groups
Faculty of Engineering
The Engineering Chapter is a partnership of the Faculty of Engineering, City and Guilds College Association (CGCA), Royal School of Mines Association (RSMA) and the Engineering Students' Union. It is open to all Imperial alumni who have graduated from the Faculty of Engineering or who have an interest in the subject.
The Chapter draws together the expertise and membership of its associations in providing alumni, students and staff with information, publications, events and networking opportunities.
One of the first collaborative ventures between CGCA and RSMA was the amalgamation of the CGCA journal 'Imperial College Engineer' and the RSMA's 'RSMA Update'. A joint Editorial Board was established and the new publication was named Imperial Engineer, produced biannually.

Several types of membership are offered by the association:
- Costs £15.00 p.a. Available by standing order only.

Royal School of Mines Association (RSMA)
The Royal School of Mines Association began life as the RSM Old Students' Dining Club. The first annual dinner was held in 1873, 22 years after the founding of the Royal School of Mines, making the RSMA the oldest of the College's four constituent college associations. The association was formally inaugurated in 1913.
Because RSM graduates moved on to various parts of the globe, branches were established in mining centres such as Australia, Canada, South Africa and Malaysia.
