Who We Are:
The Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering (CIMarE) was created in 1976 to advance and promote the science and practice of marine engineering, naval engineering, naval architecture, and other associated professions. Membership in the CIMarE allows marine engineers and those in Canada's marine technology industry to meet, correspond and exchange information and ideas. Our Branches offer technical meetings as well as various social events.
We help foster the next generation of marine engineers by offering greatly reduced student membership rates as well as scholarships and awards provided through the various educational institutions.
CIMarE hosts an annual technical conference, Mari-Tech. New research papers are presented, key note speakers address the current issues and panel discussions promote lively debates. There is also a large exhibit hall where companies supporting the marine field can display their products.
This year's Mari-Tech will be hosted by the Newfoundland and Labrador Branch in St. John's, May 5-6, 2016.
