    In October 2014 the Federation of European engineering associations joined and Ukraine. Today FEANI implements three areas of accreditation of engineering specialties and certification of professional engineers:
- FEANI INDEX, ie for engineering programs (majors) that meet the standards of education; accredited or officially recognized at national level; with European standards and are recognized in the Union;
- Engineering Card («Passport" or "Card" engineer), each owner who introduced the common European register of FEANI, which is located in Brussels;
- EUR ING («European Engineer") - an honorary title for which the candidate should have a good engineering education, years of experience engineering research, analysis and design, as well as adhere to professional ethics.
