Who are we ?

Short background history

The “European Society for Engineers and Industrialists” – SEII – was created in 2004 with the aim of taking over and continuing the activities of the “Belgian Royal Society of Engineers and Industrialists” – SRBII – which, founded in 1885 by a group of Belgian engineers inspired by the Society of Civil Engineers of France, had to cease its activities at the end of 2003.

A small number of former administrators or active members of the SRBII decided then to found the SEII, while remaining faithful to the spirit which had presided over its conduct, but adapting it to the European environment of the world of industry and engineers.

Our vision

Economic and social growth in developed countries has only been made possible by the unrelenting progress in science and technology.

Engineers and industrialists play a key role in that process, which must continue in a sustainable way in order to avoid an irreversible deterioration of our living conditions.

In Europe, misconceptions are going around, that reduce the attractiveness of the engineering profession.

Both students and young engineers need information and support regarding their career prospects.


In accordance with the law on non-profit organizations, SEII is managed by its Board of Directors. This one meets at least once a year and must report on its management to the General Assembly of SEII members.

SEII’s Board of Directors has delegated the day-to-day management of the association to an Executive Committee, whose members – mostly some of its directors – have been appointed by the Board. This Executive Committee meets as many times as necessary.
