EngineerING CARD

The European Union is dedicated to removing existing obstacles when changing jobs between Member States and promoting professional mobility. To achieve this, the process for recognising professional qualifications must be significantly sped up and simplified for engineers in particular.

FEANI developed a professional card for engineers in the form of the engineerING card.

The EngineerING card, a professional card for engineers, can make a decisive contribution to this process. It documents educational and professional qualifications according to internationally recognised standards. As a result, it also improves transparency on the European job market for engineers, thereby making it easier for companies to select suitable qualified employees from abroad.
