Verein Deutscher Ingenieure

German Association of Engineers


Established in 1856, the VDI is today the largest engineering association in Western Europe. The role of the VDI in Germany is comparable to that of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) in the United States or Engineers Australia (EA) in Australia barring the broader field of work of the VDI. The association promotes the advancement of technology and represents the interests of engineers and of engineering businesses in Germany.
