European Engineer

Eur Ing logo

European Engineer (EUR ING, Eur Ing, or Eur-Ing.) is an international professional qualification for engineers used in over 32 European countries.[1] The title is granted after successful application to a national member of the European Federation of National Engineering Associations (FEANI) which includes representation from many European countries, including much of the European Union. It allows a person who has an engineering degree and usually an engineering professional qualification in one of the member countries to use the qualification in others, but this depends on local legislation.

In providing an acceptable common and highly professional standard, the European Engineer requires proven experience in the application of knowledge, level of skill, safety and environmental consciousness, sense of responsibility, ability to communicate and level of supervision received. A minimum total period of seven years training, consisting of an accredited engineering degree, further training and responsible experience is required by FEANI for the Eur Ing title.

Recognition of the qualification and title are generally not specifically incorporated into national law. In all cases approval is only after peer review by the appropriate national engineering society. The EU Directive 89/48/EEC generally exempts a bearer from additional examination in the European Union. Names are also placed on the FEANI Register maintained by FEANI in addition to national member registers.

The title Eur Ing is "pre-nominal", i.e. it is placed before rather than after the name as in the case of a post-nominal title such as that for academic degrees (however, in some EU countries, academic degrees are also pre-nominal).
