The Special Interest Group for Engineering General Practitioners provides us with a mechanism to share and learn from each other, tackle challenges together and influence advocacy in the interest of general practice engineers.

Be part of a growing network of general practice engineers.

What we do

  1. Promote general practice engineering 
  2. Provide a forum for general practitioners to share experiences and discuss current challenges and opportunities 
  3. Provide relevant professional development for general practice engineers, assessors, educators and others to support the field 
  4. Advocate for the interests of general practice engineers with the public and key stakeholders such as MBIE, Territorial Authorities, educators and others

Our objectives are:

  • To cast the net and encourage as many engineers, of all types, who may define themselves as Generalists rather than Specialists, to join the group and share experiences.
  • To work towards an Engineering General Practice quality mark with Engineering New Zealand.
  • To establish what Skills should be defined as Engineering General Practice and what should be defined as Specialist.
  • To promote learning of the wide range of EGP skills.
  • To promote discussion/ learning/coffee groups for Engineers who work in these Practice areas.
  • To promote volunteer “Colleague Reviews” (not called Peer Review but similar) between members.
  • To make organisations such as Engineering New Zealand, Councils, MBIE, etc aware of our objectives.
  • To raise the standard of work presented to Councils by Engineers.
  • To promote the removal of the requirement of each Council in NZ to carry out their own assessment of Engineers.
