About SAIMechE

The South African Institution of Mechanical Engineering (SAIMechE) is the senior body representing the discipline of mechanical engineering in South Africa. It covers all fields of application as diverse as automobile, energy generation, process engineering, heavy manufacture, design, management, research, mining and education. SAIMechE is over a century old, and originated as the South African Association of Engineers and Architects, established in 1892. SAIMechE is a voluntary association of Mechanical Engineers, Technologists and Technicians that have access to various grades of membership and the associated benefits.

SAIMechE's Mission: To serve the interests and needs of its members and of the Mechanical Engineering Community, and to promote the continued supply of appropriate and sufficient Mechanical Engineering skills to meet the nation’s needs, thereby enhancing the competitiveness of local industry to the benefit of all. In addition, the SAIMechE motto is: 
‘Scientia Progredimur’ – By Knowledge We Advance
     

Standard of Professional Competency is the key to professional development

Driving the strategic objectives of SAIMechE is a commitment to the professional competencies described in its Standard of Professional Competency (SPC).

SAIMechE’s SPC adopts the eleven learning outcomes described in the Engineering Council of South Africa’s various competency standards for professional registration. In doing so, the Institution endorses the standard as the complete description of competencies expected of the "professional”.

The SAIMechE Standard of Professional Competency, and other documents related to our Professional Development Programme (PDP) can be viewed here.
