Standards for Engineering Qualifications, A Comparative Study in Eighteen European Countries. Studies in Engineering Education 1.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The study was prepared, at the request of UNESCO, by the European Federation of National Associations of Engineers (FEANI), an organization grouping the engineering associations of 18 countries and including 650,000 engineers. The differences in the types of engineering programs and graduation requirements of the various countries are examined, along with the differences in terminology and definitions used in the engineering education systems. The qualifications for becoming a professional engineer and the standards of engineering societies are reported, in addition to the role of the engineer in the industry of each particular country. The report concludes with an examination of the common denominators of the Continental and the British engineering education systems and discusses the possibilities of applying the European experiment of FEANI to other continents.
