The Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) is the statutory body for 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 recognized by the post-nominal Pr Eng[1] for engineers holding a B.Eng., B.Sc.Eng. or B.Ing. with relevant experience. Professional Certificated Engineers are recognized by the post-nominal Pr Cert Eng[2] 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.
