The Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) is the Statutory body for the engineering profession in South Africa. Its aims are to promote a high level of education and training of practitioners, professionalism in the engineering profession, and the interests of the profession in the country. In South Africa Professional Engineers are recognised by the post-nominal Pr Eng[1] for engineers holding a B.Eng., B.Sc. or B.Sc.Eng. with relevant experience, and by Pr Tech Eng[2]' '(Professional Engineering Technologist) for engineers holding a B.Tech with relevant experience and three years of practice; see Professional Engineer: Africa. Professional Certificated Engineers are recognised by the post-nominal Pr Cert Eng[3] for engineers holding [one of seven Government Certificates of Competency as an Engineer or Mine Manager]], with relevant experience

ECSA was established in terms of the Engineering Profession Act, 2000 (Act No. 46 of 2000), although its history dates to the South African Council for Professional Engineers (SACPE) in 1969.
