Supporting Organisations

Association for Engineering Education in South East Asia (AEESEA)

The idea for a regional association for engineering education, was first conceived at the UNESCO Regional Seminar on New Approaches to Engineering Education in Asia, held at the University of Malaya in Kuala Lumpur during March 9-13, 1970. The objective of this organization is to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas on new approaches and developments in Engineering Education.

This proposal was followed by a meeting at the UNESCO Field Service Office in Jakarta, which was sponsored by UNESCO and the World Federation of Engineering Organization (WFEO). This meeting was attended by representatives from Australia, Indonesia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Japan, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand, and the Association for Engineering Education in South East Asia (AEESEA) was established.

The inaugural meeting of AEESEA was held at the College of Engineering, University of the Philippines in Manila during October 18-19, 1973 in conjunction with the UNESCO regional seminar on Education, Industry Cooperation and Training. In 1989, the name of the association was changed to the Association for Engineering Education in South East and East Asia and the Pacific (AEESEAP) to comprehensively reflect the region of the member countries.

CAST is a constituent member of the country’s top political advisory body — the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC). Since its inauguration, CAST has made significant contributions to the prosperity and development of science and technology, to the popularization of science and technology among the public, to the emerging of large numbers of professional talents, and to the overall economic and social development in China.

The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE)

The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) was initially founded in Hong Kong in 1947 as The Engineering Society of Hong Kong to promote the professional standing, interests and technical standards of local engineers across a broad spectrum of engineering specialisations. Ever since, the Society had been advancing its members’ professional and social involvement as it flourished. It was then granted the official status as a statutory body and was incorporated in 1975 as the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers under the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers Ordinance, Chapter 1105 of the Laws of Hong Kong — as the city itself went through decades of phenomenal growth in areas of infrastructure, industrial and social development with engineers playing their pivotal roles during such process.

The Institution of Professional Engineers, Japan (IPEJ)

IPEJ, which is an official public interest incorporated institution under the Professional Engineer Act of Japan, was established in 1951. The objective of the IPEJ is to perform the clerical work with respect to training of the professional engineers, guidance and communication of the members in order to contribute to the maintenance of the dignity of the Professional Engineers and to the progress and improvement of the practice thereof and eventually contribute to the improvement of science and technology and to the development of the national economy and cooperation with the foreign countries. Technical Disciplines of IPEJ cover all the Japanese technological fields.

Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN)

The Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) is a statutory body set up by the Federal Government of Nigeria and established by Decree No. 55 of 1970 as amended by Decree 27 of 1992 and now Engineers (Registration, etc.) Act CAP E11 of 2004, with the mandate to regulate the practice of Engineering in all aspects and ramifications. COREN carries out this mandate through Accreditation of Engineering Programmes in Universities, Polytechnics and Technical Colleges, Registration of Engineering Personnel and Firms, Engineering Regulation Monitoring and Issuance of Engineering Regulations.
