The Institute of Marine Electrical Engineers (IMEE)

A professional organization for the marine-electrical professional, marine electrician, technician and engineer

Are you a marine-electrical-engineer, marine electrician, technician or engineer? Looking for a professional body that represents your special skills and abilities? This is an organization for the marine electrical and electronics professional

Institute Aims

• To develop and further the professional recognition of persons working as marine electricians, technicians and engineers in all areas of the recreational marine, commercial maritime and offshore oil industries.

• To develop and define standards for technical qualifications, competence and training for persons working as marine electricians, technicians and engineers.

• To define Technical Standards and Recommendations for marine electricians, technicians and engineers, boatowners and other interested persons.

• To provide a forum for professional communications between marine electricians, technicians and engineers and other interested parties.

• To provide a source of technical advice for members and other interested persons.

• To provide a source of information on employment opportunities for members, and those seeking marine electrical and electronics professionals.

• To provide client and consumer information for marine electricians, technicians and engineers and their clients.

• To define a Code of Ethics for marine electricians, technicians and engineers, their clients and employers.

Membership Grades

Membership grades are based on an applicant’s verifiable standard of relevant technical education, training, competence and experience.

Member Grade

On acceptance of an application for membership, a member shall be entitled to use the letters MIMEE after their name.
