The Nigerian Institution of Mechanical Engineers recognizes the need to stand up for our members within the limit of our resources, power and capacity to assist them. We will do everything within our ability to support and encourage all our members wherever they are to develop and position them for market competitiveness. We must realize that technology is advancing at a speed “greater than Mach one” and only through being up to date with current information and skill upgrade can we truly be competitive. NIMechE will continue to act in a bid to respond to the challenges facing our members and equip them with skills and resources needed to contribute to national development as well as achieving personal satisfaction and fulfillment while practicing their profession.

We are introducing the specialized groups from this year to be coordinated by seasoned Mechanical Engineers. These groups are:

(i) Design and Manufacturing group

(ii) Energy/Oil and Gas group

(iii) Production Planning, Maintenance and Management group

(iv) Building Services group and

(v) Mechanical Engineering Entrepreneurship group.

This is because Mechanical Engineers will find their skills in demand in a variety of fields and industries including medical, scientific research, construction, aerospace, acoustics, combustion, automotive engineering, etc. If a device requires movement or manufacturing, design, testing, or packaging, a mechanical engineer will most likely be involved. Please join a group of your specialty.

I am interested in getting your views on what you want us to do as an Institution. Kindly send in your ideas and suggestions to the institution or directly to me with the email below. We also have two social media platforms for NIMechE and both are operational; Facebook (www.facebook.com/nimeche ) and Twitter and Twitter  .
