The Portuguese Engineers Association (Ordem dos Engenheiros) represents top level engineers. It was founded in 1869 as Associação dos Engenheiros Civis Portugueses. In 1936 the Association with the present denomination was created in turn. Present charter dates from 1992 and gives to the Ordem the following powers: it sets national standards for the registration of individual engineers, it is the "competent authority" for the application of the General Directive to top level engineers; it confers the professional title of “Engenheiro”. Internally, the Ordem is organized in twelve areas of Engineering.

The Portuguese Association of Technical Engineers (OET - Ordem dos Engenheiros Técnicos) represents all Engineering Professionals with any higher education diploma in Engineering (from Bachelors to Doctors). It was created by the Portuguese government as a public association in 1999, but its origins date back to 1883 with “ACOP - Associação de Condutores de Obras Públicas”.
The Portuguese FEANI committee was created in 1993, following an agreement signed between the two above institutions. There is no formal coordination of the two institutions.
