Abstract: Let us denote by $ I(n,k)$ the group of bordism classes of immersions of closed smooth $ n$-manifolds in closed smooth $ (n + k)$-manifolds $ (k > 0)$. We can make $ I({\ast},k)$ into a graded algebra over the unoriented bordism ring. This algebra is polynomial. In this paper we give two sets of immersions which are polynomial generators.
