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 Section 4 (1) of the Thuringian Chamber of Architects and Engineers Act of 14.12.2016 (ThürAIKG) or who have been granted a license.

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

An application for authorization to use the professional title "engineer" can be submitted by persons who have their main residence, a professional establishment or the place of their predominant professional activity in the Free State of Thuringia.

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