List of engineering societies

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

An engineering society is a professional organization for engineers of various disciplines. Some are umbrella type organizations which accept many different disciplines, while others are discipline-specific. Many award professional designations, such as European Engineer, Professional Engineer, Chartered Engineer, Incorporated Engineer or similar. There are also many student-run engineering societies, commonly at universities or technical colleges.

Canada[edit]

In Canada, the term 'Engineering Society' sometimes refers to organizations of engineering students as opposed to professional societies of engineers. The Canadian Federation of Engineering Students (CFES), whose membership consists of most of the engineering student societies from across Canada (see below), is the national association of undergraduate engineering student societies in Canada.

Canada also has many traditions related to the calling of an engineer. See Engineering traditions in Canada for more information.

The Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC) (French: l'Institut Canadien des ingénieurs (ICI)) has the following member societies:[1]

Atlantic Canada[edit]

The Atlantic Council of Engineering Students (ACES) is the regional association of undergraduate engineering student societies in Atlantic Canada.

Ontario[edit]

The Engineering Student Societies' Council of Ontario (ESSCO) is the regional association of undergraduate engineering student societies in Ontario.

Western Canada[edit]

The Western Engineering Students' Societies Team (WESST) is the regional association of undergraduate engineering student societies in Western Canada.

Finland[edit]

In the Finnish education system, engineers are educated either in universities or in polytechnics (Finnish: Ammattikorkeakoulu). The engineers educated in universities (Finnish: diplomi-insinööri) are represented by Finnish association of graduate engineers, while the engineers from polytechnics (Finnish: insinööri (AMK)) are represented by Union of Professional Engineers in Finland. These organizations act both as trade unions and as professional bodies of the engineering profession. In addition, there is a large number of engineering societies for specific branches of technology.

In addition, there are two national academies of engineering, the Finnish Academy of Technology (Finnish: Teknillisten tieteiden akatemia, Swedish: Akademin för Tekniska Vetenskaper) for the Finnish-speaking community and Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences in Finland (Swedish: Svenska tekniska vetenskapsakademien i Finland) for the Swedish-speaking community.

Greece[edit]

Ireland[edit]

Portugal[edit]

Romania[edit]

In Romania the engineering community is led by the General Association of the Engineers in Romania (rom. Asociaţia Generală a Inginerilor din România), a professional community of engineers. They are specialized on various fields of activities like welding, non-traditional technologies and equipments, heat treating, stress and tensometry, economic etc.
Other engineering communities are:

All these professional engineering communities and associations make efforts to integrate in a larger engineering community of the European Union.

Russia[edit]

Slovenia[edit]

Engineering Academy of Slovenia

Turkey[edit]

United Kingdom[edit]

In the United Kingdom, the Engineering Council is the regulatory body for the engineering profession. The Engineering Council was incorporated by Royal Charter in 1981 and controls the award of Chartered Engineer, Incorporated Engineer, Engineering Technician and Information and Communications Technology Technician titles, through licences issued to thirty six recognised Institutions. There are also 19 Professional Affiliate Institutions, not licensed, but with close associations to the Engineering Council.

The Royal Academy of Engineering is the national academy for engineering, analogous to the Royal Society in science and the British Academy in arts and humanities.

Ireland[edit]

Ireland is home to the second oldest professional engineering body in the British Isle.
