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.
Fellow of the Institute:
A New Recognition Program for Members of CIMarE
The designation Fellow of the Institute will recognize those who have made a significant contribution to CIMarE but not necessarily the lifelong commitment of those who are appointed Honorary Life Members of the Institute.
In order to qualify as a Fellow, a person must:
· Have been a member of CIMarE for 10 consecutive years
· Have served as a member of a branch executive or national committee for 3 years
· Have or hold one of the following:
o a Transport Canada issued Certificate of Competency as a First Class Marine Engineer or as a Second Class Marine Engineer
o a Royal Canadian Navy Engineering MARE Marine Systems officer Head of Department Qualification, or the equivalent as determined by the Council
o a Royal Canadian Navy Certificate 4 or Certificate 3 for Marine Engineering Technicians
You can nominate yourself or you can propose others. Once approved by both your Branch and National Council, a Fellow will receive a Certificate and the right to include the designation FCIMarE following their names on business stationary and correspondence. As well, their names will be published on the website and in the Marine Engineering Digest from time to time.
