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, systems engineering, etc.

International Association of Engineers

The International Association of Engineers (IAENG) is the largest non-profit international association for all engineers and 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 includes:

    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 28, 2023):

More than 210,000 IAENG members
More than 300 IAENG editorial board members (EL, IJCS, IJAM)
More than 1000 IAENG congress co-chairs and committee members (IMECS, WCE, WCECS)
16 IAENG Societies
44 IAENG conferences and workshops



IAENG publishes scholarly peer-reviewed research journal. The journal can be available online with full-text content freely.

IAENG organizes conferences to provide venues for the exchange of information and ideas among the engineers and scientists.

IAENG encourages and supports the formation of various IAENG societies, covering the different engineering subjects and geographical locations.
