European Engineer (EUR ING)

EUR ING is the professional title of European Engineer awarded by  FEANI (European Federation of National Engineering Associations). The EUR ING register is maintained by FEANI and is intended to facilitate professional mobility within Europe. Successful applicants will be authorised to use the designatory letters EUR ING.

The title provides a guarantee of competence for professional engineers, in order to:

  • allow practicing engineers to move within and outside the geographical area represented by FEANI's member countries
  • ensure mutual recognition of qualifications, should engineers wish to practice outside their own country
  • encourage the continuous improvement in the quality of engineers by setting, monitoring and reviewing standards

As a professional engineering institution, CIBSE are pleased to be able to facilitate applications to the EUR ING register.


Chartered Engineers are generally eligible for the EUR ING title, and over 14,000 UK CEngs have already achieved the qualification.

UK applicants must:

  • hold active membership with a professional engineering institution (eg. CIBSE)
  • hold CEng registration
  • meet the minimum standards as set out in the "Guide to The FEANI Register"

How to apply

To apply, please submit the following documents to CIBSE:

  • A complete EUR ING application form downloaded from the FEANI website
  • Copies of your qualifications and CEng certificate
  • Chronology or overview CV of your professional engineering job titles/brief job description with dates, signed and dated by you
  • A signed and dated letter from your current employer certifying that the information provided in your curriculum vitae is accurate
  • Professional Engineer Experience Section (download from the FEANI website)
  • Payment details for a fee of £175.00 (cheque made out to CIBSE or credit card details). 

FEANI are very specific about how they would like the application form to be completed. Please make sure that you carefully read the EUR ING Applicant Guidance Notes to ensure that the form is completed correctly.

The Process

Once CIBSE has checked your application it will be forwarded on to the Engineering Council, who will then forward it to the FEANI European Monitoring Committee, which awards the title of EUR ING. This committee meets four times a year. Please allow a minimum of 6 months from the submission of your application, to receiving the decision on your registration.
