Ladies and Gentlemen, I welcome you to the Website of the Federation of African Engineering Organisations (FAEO).
The FAEO was founded in 1972 in Cairo, Egypt, then known as Federation of African Organisation of Engineers, FAOE. In 2012 however, at a General Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya, it was renamed as Federation of African Engineering Organisations, FAEO so that it will take-over the activities and operations of the then FAOE as well as the African Engineers Forum, AEF. The objective achieved by this is to have one strong and active engineering body representing African Engineering Institutions at the World Federation of Engineering Organisations (WFEO) as well as any other International body. Presently, it is the only Organisation representing African Engineering Institutions at WFEO. It has membership from the 5 regions in Africa (West, Central, Eastern, Northern and Southern) as well as national member Institutions.
The Secretariat of FAEO is being hosted in Abuja, Nigeria since May 2012.
At the 2011 World Engineer’ Convention held in Geneva, Switzerland; representatives of African engineering institutions held a meeting on 7th September, 2011 at the International Conference Centre,
