Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering Group (MEG) about us page. We are a technical group of Engineering New Zealand, with strong links and support from IMechE (The Institution of Mechanical Engineers, UK). Our group aims to encourage social and technical liaison between engineers of all levels who have an interest in mechanical engineering.

The Mechanical Engineering Group is a technical group within Engineering New Zealand that focuses specifically on mechanical engineering. Our group provides a forum for engineers to connect and collaborate on the latest trends and technologies in the field. We hold regular technical presentations, site visits, and social gatherings to bring our members together and foster a sense of community within the field.

As a member of the Mechanical Engineering Group, you will also have access to the resources and benefits offered by Engineering New Zealand. These include advocacy and representation on topical issues, professional development opportunities, and access to a community of engineers from all disciplines. Our members are professional, credible, and up-to-date with industry changes, and we support them every day to be the best engineers they can be.

Come, join the Mechanical Engineering Group today! A community of passionate mechanical engineers who aim to promote the interests of the field in New Zealand. Our group provides opportunities for social and technical liaison, professional development, and access to a global network of mechanical engineers through our strong links with IMechE. We are proud to be part of Engineering New Zealand and contribute to the organization's mission of bringing engineering to life.

Engineering New Zealand


Engineering New Zealand is a non-profit membership organisation, dedicated to promoting the interests of engineers and engineering and do so by having a voice on topical issues. Our members are professional, credible and up to date with industry changes. We support them every day to be the best engineers they can be, and shout their contribution to our communities from the rooftops. Put simply, we bring engineering to life.

As New Zealand’s professional body for engineers since 1914, we create a community of learning, collaboration, and support for engineers from all disciplines throughout the lifespan of their careers.

Institution of Mechanical Engineers


As a global community of mechanical engineers represented in over 140 countries, the Institution is the largest network of mechanical engineering knowledge, skill and opportunity in the world. With an ever growing membership based outside the UK, we develop and maintain key partnerships with leading multi-national employers to ensure their technical workforces are trained to the highest standard. By equipping engineers with the right skills, knowledge and experience to help them develop, we contribute to strengthening the world’s leading companies.
