The Caspian Engineers Society (CES) is non-profit organisation, founded on the principle of developing “Engineering Culture” across the Caspian region. Mission of The CES is to develop engineers professionally, support regional industry by introducing world class experience and technology, and offer an engineering network. Further aim is to promote engineering awareness among the public that will drive "Be Engineer" movement and spark the interest of young generation in engineering.[1]

Main Objectives[edit]

  • Develop regional engineering network to share knowledge and experience;
  • Bridge between management and engineering community within companies;

History[edit]

In November, 2007, a group of young engineers came together to discuss some career, education issues and share concerns among each other. That meeting was the start point of the Caspian Engineers Society. First meetings were unofficial, but in further meetings it was decided to establish a non-profit organization consisting of volunteers which aimed to:

  • Support young engineers and scientists to be technically expert in their fields;
  • Support industry development in terms of technology and engineering areas;
  • Spread out `engineering culture` across the Caspian region, etc.[1]
