AIPE is in permanent contact with the engineering associations of other countries to reach agreements that will meet the standards of the engineering profession and reduce barriers between engineers from different countries. These agreements support mobility and bring on the recognition of engineers as well as the exchange of knowledge among international engineering communities.
These are the current agreements:
On October 20th, 2022 a Mutual Recognition Agreement was signed between AIPE and the Engineering Council according to which Chartered Engineers can apply to become Professional Engineers by AIPE, and vice versa.
According to the present recognition agreement, Spanish professional engineers aspiring to obtain the distinction of “Chartered Engineers” will experience a shorter and more efficient procedure compared to the conventional process. This is because their official documentation will be automatically admitted and recognized, and the need to undergo a personal interview assessment is eliminated.
In addition to a significant administrative simplification, this agreement also means a considerable reduction in deadlines.
