Globalisation and deregulation within the European Union make new and more complex demands on engineers. Only a strong representation of interests of the engineers in Saxony-Anhalt by the Saxony-Anhalt Chamber of Engineers ensures that the individual will be able to consolidate its position within this development and have its interests attended to.
The Saxony-Anhalt Chamber of Engineers represents the interests of members belonging to all fields of engineering towards the state government and institutions in the field of economy, science and administration.
Thanks to the Chamber of Engineering, each engineer is able to directly influence the framework conditions relating to his or her work
