## Abstract

We consider the problem of how much edge connectivity is necessary to force a graph G to contain a fixed graph H as an immersion. We show that if the maximum degree in H is δ, then all the examples of δ-edge connected graphs which do not contain H as a weak immersion must have a treelike decomposition called a tree-cut decomposition of bounded width. If we consider strong immersions, then it is easy to see that there are arbitrarily highly edge connected graphs which do not contain a fixed clique Kt as a strong immersion. We give a structure theorem which roughly characterizes those highly edge connected graphs which do not contain Kt as a strong immersion. © 2014 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.
