Dr Alan Pilkington recognised by European engineering body

Posted on 12/11/2012
2012 Eani

Dr Alan Pilkington has been awarded the title EUR ING (European professional Engineer) by EFNEA (European Federation of National Engineering Associates) in Brussels. This prestigious award recognises academic qualifications and experience. Dr Pilkington heads the Enterprise Engineering research initiative within the School of Management at Royal Holloway, University of London, and his work on nanotechnology, fuel cells, and manufacturing strategy have been widely published in leading journals such as the Journal of Operations Management and the California Management Review.

The EUR ING title is a guarantee of competence for professional engineers, in order

  • to facilitate the movement of practicing engineers within and outside the geographical area represented by FEANI's member countries and to establish a framework of mutual recognition of qualifications in order to enable engineers who wish to practice outside their own country to carry with them a guarantee of competence
  • to provide information about the various formation systems of individual engineers for the benefit of prospective employers
  • to encourage the continuous improvement of the quality of engineers by setting, monitoring and reviewing standards

EUR INGs are listed in the FEANI Register, a database maintained by the Secretariat General in Brussels. Currently over 31.000 European Engineers are listed in the register.
