The European Young Engineers (EYE) is a European network  of young engineering professionals and students. Main activities have been identified as sharing knowledge, fostering mobility and developing personal and professional skills.   In the mid-1990s, Europe’s expansion towards Eastern Europe and the Baltic was approaching. For the engineering profession, this posed many challenges: changes in engineering education; the resulting higher mobility in Europe; mutual recognition of diplomas and professional experiences.
Young Engineers have been confronted with increasing international cooperation in their professional engineering projects. National engineering associations could only partially support their members, especially their students and young engineers.
Young members of the European engineers‘ organizations created a pan-European platform and founded the European Young Engineers (EYE) in 1994. During the following years, several engineering associations in Europe have been invited to join and EYE rapidly grew.
EYE has grown to more than 18,000 associations and more than 150,000 young engineers in Europe. EYE started to offer its member organizations and their students and young engineers the access to a Europe-wide network by linking the engineering associations.
Twice a year, EYE organizes a member-hosted conference, with between 80 and 300 participants from all over Europe. Between these events, the community stays in touch via their website  and social media channels.
In 2007 the European Young Engineers signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with FEANI .  
Statues of the European Young Engineers
