The word "engineering" is derived from the Latin "ingenium",
meaning something like brilliant idea, flash of genius. It was created
in the 16th century and originally described a profession that we
would probably call an artistic inventor. Engineers apply the knowledge
of the mathematical and natural sciences (biological and physical),
with judgment and creativity to develop ways to utilize the materials
and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind. The subjects are
diverse and include names like bioengineering, computer engineering,
electrical and electronics engineering, financial engineering, industrial
engineering, internet engineering and systems engineering, etc.
International Association of Engineers
The International Association of Engineers (IAENG) is a non-profit international association for the engineers and the computer scientists. IAENG was founded by a group of engineers and computer scientists in 1968, originally as a private club network for its founding members. Later, with the efforts from its members, IAENG membership became open to all the members in the engineering and computer science community. Nowadays, the IAENG members include research center heads, faculty deans, department heads, professors, research scientists/engineers, experienced software development directors and engineers, and university postgraduate and undergraduate students etc., from over one hundred different countries.
Our goals are to promote the co-operation between the professionals
in various fields of the engineering and to cultivate an environment
for the advance and development of the technology. Our objective
Promoting the interactions between the engineers;
Advancing the application of engineering techniques from the academics
to the industry;
Facilitating the exchange of information and ideas among the engineers
and scientists freely.
Quick IAENG Facts:
The IAENG has (updated on February 8, 2009):
More than 200 IAENG editorial board members
More than 800 IAENG multiconference co-chairs and committee members
16 IAENG Societies
43 IAENG conferences and workshops
scholarly peer-reviewed research journal. The journal can be available
online with full-text content freely.
conferences to provide venues for the exchange of information and
ideas among the engineers and scientists.
and supports the formation of various IAENG societies, covering
the different engineering subjects and geographical locations.
IAENG welcome all the engineering professionals to join us. There will be no membership fee in according with our objective to facilitate the exchange of information and ideas freely. There are three types of memberships: IAENG Member, IAENG Senior Member and IAENG Fellow. Join IAENG now!
There are many more IAENG activities that can fit with your interests in the engineering fields. You are welcome to join our IAENG Societies, or to propose new IAENG Societies. You can also apply for serving in our IAENG journals advisory boards, or take part in the organizing of our IAENG conferences etc...
