Chambers’ Affiliation with FEANI

The Chamber of Engineers continues to be an ever growing, dynamic and active organisation working towards ongoing enhancement and safeguarding of the engineering profession.  At both a local and European level, the Chamber actively participates in international discussion groups through the Chamber's various affiliations.

FEANI

FEANI was founded in 1951, a few years after the end of the second world war, by a group of French and German engineers who thought that through technology, their common field of activity, it would be possible to create links between former adversaries, and so to facilitate the prosperous and peaceful development of European society.  Associations from seven European countries immediately joined this initiative.

Today associations from 33 European countries are represented in FEANI, bringing together more than 350 national engineering associations, all of which are recognised in their countries as the representatives of the engineering profession at the national level. Through these national associations, FEANI represents the interests of approximately 3,5 million professional engineers in Europe.

FEANI is a founding member of the World Federation of Engineering Organisations (WFEO) and collaborates with many other organisations dealing with engineering and technology issues and engineering education.

FEANI is officially recognised by the European Commission as representing the engineering profession in Europe. The federation also has consultative status with UNESCO, UNIDO and the Council of Europe.

Through its activities and services, especially with the attribution of the EUR ING professional title, FEANI aims to facilitate the mutual recognition of engineering qualifications in Europe and to strengthen the position, role and responsibility of engineers in society.
