An engineering society is a professional organization for engineers of various disciplines. Some are umbrella type organisations which accept many different disciplines, while others are discipline specific. Many will give out professional qualifications, such as Chartered engineer or similar. A very much non-comprehensive list of some engineering societies around the world is below.
