The Nigerian Institution of Mechanical Engineers

Welcome to official Website of the Nigerian Institution of Mechanical Engineers

The Nigerian Institution of Mechanical Engineers (NIMechE) is the Mechanical Engineering Division of The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE). The Institution has full standing authority as derived from the Articles of Association of The Nigerian Society of Engineers and is not a parallel body to the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE). Established in December 2002 at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Mechanical Engineering Division of the NSE at Port Harcourt, it was unanimously agreed that the Mechanical Engineering division of the NSE be transformed into The Nigerian Institution of Mechanical Engineers under the leadership of Engr. (Chief) Akintunde S. Zedomi, FNSE, FNIMechE and other elected officials to ensure the take-off to smooth running of the Institution. The Institution has rapidly grown over the last twenty years from just a division in 2002 to over Thirty – Two chapters in 2022. The Chapters of NIMechE are largely responsible for carrying out activities and programs to actualize the objectives and mandates of the Institution. The National Secretariat of the Institution is at No. 10, Damaturu Close, Opp. H-Medix by Domino’s Pizza, 3rd Avenue, Gwarinpa, FCT, Abuja. In addition to the National Secretariat, the Institution also has a Liaison office at the Lagos National Engineering Centre, Lagos. NIMechE is consistently striving towards the attainment of its rightful place in Mechanical Engineering profession in Nigeria.
