Approval to hold the professional title "Engineer" or "Engineer"

The professional title "engineer" or "engineer" is protected by the Lower Saxony Engineering Act (NIngG). The same applies to word connections and similar designations (see also Section 1 NIngG). In order to protect consumers, it is intended to ensure that only sufficiently qualified persons practise the profession under the professional title 'engineer'. Such protection of the professional title makes it necessary for the existing professional qualification to be checked for compliance with the requirements applicable under the NIngG.

If you do not have a domestic engineering/study degree that meets the requirements (see also Section 6 No. 1 NIngG), you need a permit from the Lower Saxony Chamber of Engineers (see also Section 6 No. 5 in Verb.m. Sections 7 to 9 (NIngG), if you have a domicile or an establishment in Lower Saxony, or exercise your profession in whole or in part, but not only temporarily and occasionally, in Lower Saxony, this does not apply if you have already obtained a permit from a competent authority of another federal state.
