Our Association 

The Engineering Professions Association of Namibia (EPA) is a non-profit, voluntary membership association of engineering and related professionals in Namibia. EPA has since September 1992 been a full member of the Commonwealth Engineers' Council, London, UK.

Our Aim

The Association strives to uphold excellence in the field of engineering by promoting the image of the engineering profession and the continuing education and common interests of its members.

Engineers, engineering technologists and technicians have traditionally played a major role in Namibia, as witnessed by the excellent infrastructure relating to - among others - transport, telecommunications, power supply, and water supply. With the independence of Namibia in 1990, a greater emphasis has been placed on the effective utilisation of scarce resources, the maintenance of existing infrastructure, and sustainable development with due regard to the protection of the environment. The engineering profession has a crucial role to play in this regard, and the Association aims to act as a facilitator towards fulfilling this role.

We Offer

EPA promotes the engineering profession through its involvement in activities such as the following:

  • Promoting technical awareness at school level
  • Providing study loans/bursaries to engineering students
  • Providing inputs into the tertiary education of engineers and technicians
  • Engaging in capacity building, such as courses and conventions
  • Promoting environmental awareness
  • Promoting a positive image for the profession
  • Serving the common interests of its members social activities
  • Circulars are issued throughout the year to inform members on matters of interest, such as luncheons, seminars, etc.
