Passionate Discussions about the Foundations of Engineering Education in Europe

On 27th of October, the final Stakeholder Conference on CTP for Engineers took place at the “Haus der Ingenieure” in Vienna. More than 60 European experts from ministries and Engineering Organisations discussed the main controversies in regard to the revised draft proposal. Discussion topics were e.g. the possibility of compensation of academic education, the potential difficulties in non-regulated countries in regard to the requirement of a home-country certification and the possibility to base a two-level recognition system on a common scope of authorization. In mid-September, the CTP Project Team sent out the Draft Proposal and Survey Report for consultation to the Competent Authorities of the Engineering profession and over hundred National and European Engineering organisations, and received a high amount of feedback. The results of the workshop are currently analysed and the ECEC Project team will submit a final report with its´ recommendations for further steps in regard to CTP for Engineers in November/December 2016.
