The EUR ING Certificate delivered by ENGINEERS EUROPE is designed as a guarantee of competence for professional engineers, in order
- to facilitate the movement of practicing engineers within and outside the geographical area represented by ENGINEERS EUROPE's member countries and to establish a framework of mutual recognition of qualifications in order to enable engineers who wish to practice outside their own country to carry with them a guarantee of competence
- to provide information about the various formation systems of individual engineers for the benefit of prospective employers
- to encourage the continuous improvement of the quality of engineers by setting, monitoring and reviewing standards
The EUR INGs are listed in the ENGINEERS EUROPE Register, a database maintained by the Secretariat General in Brussels. Currently some 35.000 European Engineers are listed in the register (01/2023). The "EUR ING TUTORIAL" and "EUR ING SPEC" give the details on the purpose of the Register and how it is managed.
