The Society of Professional Engineers (International)
Central Administration Contact & International Friends of SPE International
The main objective of the Society is to enhance the status of trained and experienced professional engineers in the absence in the UK of any legal protection for the title "Engineer". The founding members believed that this was necessary, as "Engineer" can be used by anyone in the UK, whether or not trained or experienced. This remains a priority for the Society.
The Society created and maintains a Register of Engineers †who can demonstrate knowledge and competence in engineering. Applicants who meet the Society's criteria for membership may use the designation "P.Eng"..
The Society of Professional Engineers traces its origins to the Society of Engineers, which was founded in 1854 as a learned society. On 27 October, 1969, a number of the Society of Engineers' Corporate members formed the Society of Professional Engineers. (The original Society of Engineers was integrated in 2005 into the Institution of Incorporated Engineers, itself merging with the Institution of Electrical Engineers in 2006 to form the Institution of Engineering and Technology, the biggest professional engineering body in Europe).
The Society is a Company Limited by Guarantee, registered in England, and its Memorandum and Articles of Association were approved by the UK Government's former Department of Trade and Industry, now Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. Its legal objects are:
The Society keeps †a register of persons who subscribe to the Society and †who, in the eyes of the Society, 'have proved their competence and can be accurately described as Professional Engineers', awarding them the 'PEng MSPE' (member) or 'PEng FSPE' (fellow) designation according to qualifications and experience Getting in is tough, but can prove rewarding if trying to excel in areas such as proving an invention.
In 2018 April, when The Society of Professional Engineers UK merged with Institution of Engineering and Technology, the international members of SPE-UK establish the Society of Professional Engineers UK & International and to keep the register of International Professional Engineers and their designations PEng,MSPE(UK &International) and PEng,MSPE(International)
The society becomes an online society and collaborates with other international engineering organisations which have the same objectives.
The Original Logo of †The Society of Professional Engineers (UK) is shown below but The Society of Professional Engineers UK† & International will no longer use that logo and we are not a new form of The Society of Professional Engineers (UK) but a New International Professional Engineers Organization which does not link to The Society of Professional Engineers UK although we re-organize the former members of The Society of Professional Engineers UK to retain PEng titles.
Due to our Life Membersí wishes and UK is also included in International Community, on 8 February 2019, The Society of Professional Engineers (UK and International) changed itsí name to The Society of Professional Engineers (UK and International). Our working documents will also be changed accordingly.
