Year 2008 is marked as year of cooperation establishing with international organizations:
1.       FEANI –European Federation of National Engineering Associations
2.       COPISEE- Permanent Conference of Engineers of South-East Europe

FEANI –European Federation of National Engineering Associations

The Union of Engineers and Technicians of Serbia was admitted into membership of FEANI, at FEANI General Assembly, held in Prague, on September 29, 2006.

European Federation of National Engineering Associations was created in September 1951 with Associations from seven European countries, as founders. Today associations from 29 European countries are represented in FEANI. Through these national associations, its members, FEANI represents the interests of approximately 2 million professional engineers in Europe.

FEANI is officially recognized by the European Commission as representing the engineering profession in Europe. The federation also has consultative status with UNESCO, UNIDO and the Council of Europe.

FEANI is a founding member of the World Federation of Engineering Organisations (WFEO) and collaborates with many other organisations dealing with engineering and technology issues and engineering education.

FEANI’s purpose is to help the engineers of Europe, through its National Member Associations by giving them the opportunity to improve their career development, to complete their training and to develop their scientific capacity.


In order to fulfill its main tasks FEANI initiates and conducts numerous international projects, majority of them financed by the EU Commission. FEANI has two committees, which help to pursue the federation's objectives and assist the Executive Board in defining its policy in their respective fields.

The Committee on Continuing Professional Development (CPD) implements FEANI's policy on continuing professional development, an area of utmost importance for the engineering profession.

The European Monitoring Committee (EMC) is composed of engineers with expertise in the European professional systems. The EMC receives EUR ING and INDEX applications from the National Monitoring Committee and checks their conformity with established rules. The EUR ING title delivered by FEANI 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 FEANI'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 as well as to provide information about the various formation systems of individual engineers for the benefit of prospective employers and to encourage the continuous improvement of the quality of engineers by setting, monitoring and reviewing standards.

On 42nd CPDC meeting, held in Paris on January 15, 2007, Mrs. Gospavić presented, to other members of CPD Committee, the activities of UETS and its members in the field of continuing professional development.

COPISEE- Permanent Conference of Engineers of South-East Europe

COPISEE- Permanent Conference of Engineers of South-East Europe was established as organization of the National Unions of Engineers of the South-East European Countries in 1971.
The main aim of this organization is to further and facilitate the exchange of experience among Engineers from South-East European countries on technical-Scientific problems of common interest, the solution of which will contribute to the development of technology and the prosperity of these Countries.
Beside engineering organizations from Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Romania and Turkey, the engineers from Serbia actively participate in work of COPISEE through their organization the Union of Engineers and Technicians of Serbia.

The last COPISEE meeting took place in Bucharest on June 11. 2007. The meeting was hosted by the AGIR - general Association of the Engineers in Romaniers. During the meeting, concrete issues to deal with in the next period within the COPISEE were discussed as well as the possibilites of participating in different projects on regional level which would be financed using FP7 funds.

Next COPISEE meeting will take place in Greece.


The Union of Engineers and Technicians of Serbia has established cooperation with Engineering Institution of Macedonia, leading engineering organization in Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

UETS President prof. dr Časlav Lačnjevac participated at ceremnoious assignment of the acknowledgment "Engineering ring 2008" held in the organiztion of the Engineering Institution of Macedonia, on July 4th  2008 in Ohrid. 

The rings were assigned bz Macedonian President Mr Branko Crvenkovski, under whose auspice a whole manifestation was organised.

Representatives of the engineering organizations from the region, participated at this manifestation and this was an opportunity for Mr Lačnjevac to discuss with them the issues of mutual interest and future cooperation between our organizations.  

Defining Quality – The Relevance of Field Specific Approaches to Quality Assurance in Higher Education”  

It is our pleasure to draw your attention to a cutting edge European conference: “Defining Quality – The Relevance of Field Specific Approaches to Quality Assurance in Higher Education”  on the 2/3rd of November 2009 in Bonn/Germany and  jointly co-hosted by FEANI together with

In this truly international Conference, the European Networks in the field of Engineering,  Informatics, Chemistry, Geology etc. will present the outcome of their work over the past years, especially their achievements in the formulation of European wide learning outcomes and competence profiles for study programs in their respective discipline. This event has been organized on the background of the  “Leuven Communique” at the end of April 2009, in which the 46 European ministers of education have identified the development of disciplinary learning outcomes, competence profiles and qualification frameworks (under the umbrella of the so called “Dublin Descriptors”) as a crucial prerequisite for academic as well as professional mobility within the European Higher Education Area and indeed on a global scale. 

The conference will be opened by a key note speech of Director Helene Clark from the Directorate General for Education and Culture (EU Commission). We are also honored that the presidents of ENQA and ECA as well as high level representatives of the European Business Community and the European University Association have followed our invitation and will jointly discuss the way forward. We expect to attract a large audience from Higher Education Institutions, Quality Assurance and Accreditation Agencies, European business leaders, students and public authorities from around the globe.
