Chamber of Engineers - right to use the professional title of engineer (foreign qualification, establishment)

Service Description

The professional title "engineer" is protected by law, i.e. it may only be used in the Free State of Thuringia by those who meet the requirements set out in the Thuringian Chamber of Architects and Engineers Act of 14.12.2016 (ThürAIKG) under § 4 Para. 1 or who have been granted a permit.

The Thuringian Chamber of Engineers is the competent body for the Free State of Thuringia for the granting of permits to use the professional title "engineer" for applicants with a foreign educational qualification.

An application for a permit to use the professional title "Ingenieur/Ingenieurin" can be submitted by persons who have their main residence, a professional branch or the place of predominant professional activity in the Free State of Thuringia.

The Chamber of Engineers of Thuringia grants a permit to use the professional title "Engineer" only upon application and insofar as the prerequisites of equivalence of the foreign degree or training qualification with a degree in a technical or scientific field at a German university within the meaning of § 4 para. 1 ThürAIKG are met or significant differences within the meaning of § 4 para. 2 ThürAIKG can be compensated by compensatory measures.
