WELCOME TO INSTITUTION OF ENGINEERS PAPUA NEW GUINEA INC.
The Institution of Professional Engineers Papua New Guinea (IEPNG) is the professional body which represents professional engineers from all disciplines in Papua New Guinea. The terms "engineering profession" and "professional engineer/engineering" are used by the Institution in the broadest possible way, to include all those who use a systematic process of analysis, design/synthesis and implementation, strive to operate in a responsible way, are governed by a code of ethics set by their peers, and engage in continuing professional development to maintain the currency of their competence.
The terms adopted do not specify how such skills are achieved, and thus IEPNG seeks to include people from widely varying educational backgrounds.
IEPNG provides services for about 1,400 members, who are classified into various membership classes according to their levels of education and extent of experience in engineering practice. The Institution embarked to set internationally bench-marked qualifying standards for degree qualifications in engineering and thus serves engineers by securing formal recognition for their professional standing by working with relevent organisations in Papua New Guinea and networking with organisations abroad.
IEPNG assesses foreign qualifications, encourages and assists continuing professional development through the four (4) year Graduate Professional Development Program (GPDP). IEPNG provides a widening range of membership services including in house short courses. It also represents engineers' interests with government and provides contact with other professionals through Branches and Chapters. IEPNG promotes public debate on engineering issues in the community, and seeks to contribute, on behalf of the engineering profession, to the resolution of issues affecting the wider community.
IEPNG is governed by an elected Board, chaired by the President and eight other members. This Board sets strategy and employs the Chief Executive Officer, who manages the day to day operations of the Institution to provide services to members and to fund activities as defined by the Corporate Plan.
