Engineering

Engineering
Council

The Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) is a statutory body established in terms of the Engineering Profession Act, 2000 (Act No. 46 of 2000). ECSA’s predecessor was established by the Engineering Profession of South Africa Act, 1990 (Act 114 of l990).


ECSA sees itself in partnership with the State and the engineering profession to promote a high level of education and training of practitioners in the engineering profession so as to facilitate full recognition of professionalism in the engineering profession, both locally and abroad. It enjoys full autonomy although it is accountable to the State, the profession and the public for the fair and transparent administration of its business in the pursuit of its goals.

However, in pursuing this goal, ECSA has an implied responsibility to ensure that the interests of the profession (the practitioners) are also promoted. The interest of the public and the country can only be served properly if a profession is healthy and strong. For this reason ECSA promotes the well-being of the voluntary societies which are active in engineering. Since the societies are the instruments through which the interests of the practitioners are served, a good balance between "public interests" (ECSA) and "own interests" (Societies)

Vision Statement

ECSA’s vision is to ensure that South Africa enjoys all the benefits of a strong, competent, growing, sustainable and representative engineering profession, able to provide all the expertise necessary for the socio-economic needs of the country and to exert a positive influence in South Africa

Mission Statement

ECSA’s mission is to create the circumstances in which society is confident that the engineering profession in South Africa is able to carry out the functions necessary for the socio-economic growth in the country.

ECSA achieves this objective through:
  • Setting and monitoring of standards to International norms;
  • Certifying and ensuring the competence of individuals through registration;
  • Ensuring quality of engineering education through accreditation;
  • Regulating professional conduct; and
  • Growing the profession in quantity and quality in partnership with stakeholders.
